De nombreux secteurs industriels (transports, bâtiment, loisirs, ...) s'intéressent aux matériaux composites dans un souci d'allègement des structures. Une utilisation efficace de ces matériaux requière la maîtrise de l'ensemble du processus de conception, du concept initial au produit final. La modélisation de la réponse mécanique d'une pièce composite est une étape essentielle pour assurer son adéquation au cahier de charges. Ce cours vous permettra d'acquérir les principaux outils nécessaires à la description du comportement des composites stratifiés aux différentes échelles d'observation, de celle de la fibre à celle de la pièce.

This course provides the basic toolkit for any signal processing application - the abstraction of signals and systems, from the point of view of analysis and characterisation. We encounter signals and systems extensively in our day-to-day lives, from making a phone call, listening to a song, editing photos, manipulating audio files, using speech recognition softwares like Siri and Google now, to taking EEGs, ECGs and X-Ray images. Each of these involves gathering, storing, transmitting and processing information from the physical world. This course will equip you to deal with these tasks efficiently by learning the basic mathematical framework of signals and systems.

The oil and gas industry has an enormous impact on all aspects of daily life. Individuals, corporations, and national governments make financial and policy decisions based on the cost, use, and availability of these two natural resources. This two-week course looks at the two most fundamental aspects of the oil and gas industry, its operations and markets, each of which is addressed as a separate module in the course.

This course gives you a complete insight into the modern design of digital systems fundamentals from an eminently practical point of view. Unlike other more "classic" digital circuits courses, our interest focuses more on the system than on the electronics that support it. This approach will allow us to lay the foundation for the design of complex digital systems.

There are opportunities throughout the design process of any product to make significant changes, and ultimately impact the future of manufacturing, by embracing the digital thread. In this course, you will dig into the transformation taking place in how products are designed and manufactured throughout the world. It is the second of two courses that focuses on the "digital thread" – the stream that starts at the creation of a product concept and continues to accumulate information and data throughout the product life cycle.

This course will help you recognize how the "digital thread" is the backbone of the digital manufacturing and design (DM&D) transformation, turning manufacturing processes from paper-based to digital-based. You will have a working understanding of the digital thread – the stream that starts at product concept and continues to accumulate information and data throughout the product’s life cycle – and identify opportunities to leverage it.
