Description

The introduction of advanced composite materials into many of the new generation aircraft and spacecraft has given rise to a significant increase in all aspects of operational capability. These materials come in many forms; organic and non-organic, fibrous and particulate, and endless combinations of the above which not only give enhanced strength characteristics, but deliver them in very specific design directions. The more common uses are in both primary and secondary aircraft structures, however, considerable effort is also being put into designing composite materials for use in hostile environments such as those destined for use as jet engine turbine blades.
