Abstract:

In less than two decades, advanced composites have become established as the most efficient high performance structural materials, and their use is increasing rapidly. In this paper we review the development of composites, focusing on aircraft production components and some significant missile, spacecraft and Space Shuttle Orbiter applications. We review the status of the technology, and consider likely future developments in the coming decades. Author
