Max U. Kismarton
Biography: Max U. Kismarton is an aircraft designer and a Technical Fellow at The Boeing Company, with extensive hands-on experience in engineering (design, loads, stress, weights, testing, advanced metals and composites), manufacturing (tooling, processes, machinery, shop management) and management (cost engineering and estimating, lean manufacturing, project/program management). He is currently working in the materials and processes group, heading up multiple research and development projects on micromechanical behavior and hybrid laminates, and high performance wing box structures for present and future commercial aircrafts. He has designed and built composite airframe primary structure for small and large composite aircrafts such as Amber, Gnat, High Speed Civil Transport, F-16XL-2, Shadow, ERAST, Hummingbird, UCAV X-45 and the 787 Dreamliner. Kismarton holds a B.S. in aerospace engineering from the University of Kansas.

Structural Composites

Classes by this instructor

This course provides an introduction to high-performance composite materials, covering both engineering and manufacturing of composite parts and assemblies, basic material properties of the constituents (fiber and matrix), how they combine to form plies, or lamina, how to obtain lamina properties, how laminae are combined to form laminates and how to obtain the laminate properties. Other engineering topics include stress analysis, failure criteria and testing methods.
