Description

Developmental efforts in composite technology have included a wide variety of secondary and primary structure in industries ranging from sporting goods to high performance aircraft. In addition to potentially significant weight savings, composites offer the potential benefits of increased fatigue life, corrosion resistance, and acquisition or life-cycle cost savings. Conventional two-dimensional composites, however, have poor interlaminar strengths and are susceptible to damage.
