1 Review
Aerospace Materials provides a grounding in state-of-the-art aerospace materials technology, including developments in aluminum, titanium, and nickel alloys, as well as polymers and polymer composites. Experts in each topic have contributed key overviews that summarize current knowledge and indicate future trends. The book begins by outlining the industrial applications to airframes, aeroengines, and spacecraft before delving systematically into specific materials. It examines lightweight materials and then focuses on materials suited to high-temperature applications. The book combines perspectives in physics, materials science, and mechanical and aeronautical engineering.
