Details the development of composites, in particular carbon fibre reinforced plastics, for use in aerospace structures. Describes a wide range of products manufactured by various companies. Looks at the integrity of these materials and the testing methods used to ensure this. In particular, discusses metal matrix composites, aluminium/silicon carbide particulate MMCs and fibre‐metal laminates. Finally looks at advanced composites’ promise of being able to meet the needs of high specific properties and enhanced temperature capability required for future engines.
