Design of Durable, Repairable, and Maintainable Aircraft Composites
Society of Automotive Engineers, Jan 1, 1997 - Transportation - 139 pages
Advanced composites have found increasing application in commercial aircraft structures as a result of the strength, stiffness, fatigue, corrosion, and weight benefits afforded to improve performance. Safety and functionality are high priorities for integrating composite components into commercial aircraft structures.
