Aviation Industry Strengthened by Composites

I recently shared my thoughts on how composites are strengthening aviation with IndustryWeek. The article touches upon the pros and cons of the advanced material, as well as the importance of simulation for design and testing. Here’s a preview of the article:

Increasingly, aircraft designers have been turning to composites to help make their vehicles lighter, more fuel-efficient and more comfortable for passengers.

Half of the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A350, for example, are constructed of composite materials, and other manufacturers, like Bombardier, are adopting composites for a variety of aircraft sections.

Composites present a number of substantial advantages to aircraft designers — as well as potential problems.
