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. Ce MOOC est un module indépendant de l'ensemble 'Pratiques en Conception des Structures Composites' : fabrication et caractérisation, modélisation.

Let’s keep making history together - over and over! In 2013 and 2014, over 200,000 people from more than 190 countries came together in this MOOC to explore creativity, innovation, and change. What did we DO? We discovered creative uniqueness through Creative Diversity. We used Intelligent Fast Failure to build innovative skills. We applied CENTER principles to drive personal change. And we implemented value creation skills to initiate lasting change.
