Description

Composite materials represent the future of the defense, transportation and civil construction industries. These materials have been used extensively in recent years on applications varying from tennis rackets to re-entry vehicles. Modern applications are requiring more complex geometries, and more large scale unitized composite structures. These applications are presently not feasible due to the high manufacturing cost and two-dimensional nature of conventional composite materials.
