Aircraft Advanced Composite Material
Composite materials consist of a combination of materials Aircraft Composite Materials that are mixed together to achieve specific structural properties. The individual materials do not dissolve or merge Advanced Composite Material completely in the composite, but they act together as one.
Normally, the components can be physically identified as they Advanced Composite Material interface with one another. The properties of the composite Advanced Composite Material material are superior to the properties of the individual
materials from which it is constructed.
An Aircraft Composite Materials is made of a fibrous material Advanced Composite Material embedded in a resin matrix, generally laminated with fibers oriented in alternating directions to give the material strength Advanced Composite Material and stiffness. Fibrous materials are not new; wood is the most common fibrous structural material known to man.
Applications of composites on aircraft include:
• Flight control surfaces
• Landing gear doors
• Leading and trailing edge panels on the wing and stabilizer
• Interior components
• Floor beams and floor boards
• Vertical and horizontal stabilizer primary structure on large aircraft
• Primary wing and fuselage structure on new generation large aircraft
• Turbine engine fan blades
Major Components of a Laminate An isotropic material has uniform properties in all directions.
The measured properties of an isotropic material are independent of the axis of testing. Metals such as aluminum Advanced Composite Material and titanium are examples of isotropic materials.
A fiber is the primary load carrying element of the composite material. The composite material is only strong and stiff in the direction of the fibers. Unidirectional composites have Aircraft Advanced Composite Materials predominant mechanical properties in one direction and are said to be anisotropic, having mechanical and/or physical properties that vary with direction relative to natural reference axes inherent in the material. Components made from fiberreinforced Aircraft Composite Materials composites can be designed so that the fiber orientation produces optimum mechanical properties, but they can only approach the true isotropic nature of metals, such as aluminum and titanium.
