Composites have undeniably gained most acceptance in Aerospace at large and their demand is ever increasing, particularly polymer-matrix composites for structural parts and ceramic matrix composites for turbine engines. While their favorable strength-to-weight ratio, formability and hybridity make them a true designer material, there are the challenges of high cost, ready availability, repairability, secured quality and uniformity and the desire for more functionality.
Newly developed high-performance composites point the way in the right direction offering solutions to the challenges and issues mentioned.
