Even though composite materials are more and more used in modern airframes, many significant improvements are still achievable. Firstly, the substitution of the assembly of many small composite parts by a single one-shot large part provides additional weight reduction. Secondly, the final assembly line process must be adapted to composite properties (lack of ductility, stiffness). Thirdly, if the ...

The use of composite materials as principal structural elements in an aircraft requires the complete understanding of their mechanical properties. In particular, when structure is subjected to high frequency loading conditions (i.e. low and high energy impacts) phenomena as wave propagation, strain rate dependences, delaminations and rupture need to be fully understood. This is crucial to obtain c ...
