Abstract:

This report is an edited version of notes prepared in connection with a series of lectures on Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures that was given at the Aeronautical Research Laboratories during November 1981. The aim of the lectures was to provide a broad introduction to virtually all aspects of the technology of composite materials for aircraft structural applications. Topics covered included the basic theory of fibre reinforcement material characteristics of the commonly used fibre, resin, and composite systems component form and manufacture structural mechanics of composite laminates joining composites environmental effects, durability and damage tolerance NDI procedures repair procedures aircraft applications airworthiness considerations.
