  • Lightning Strike Protection for Carbon Fiber Aircraft
    for commercial nacelle. applications subjected to lightning strike effects, it has been. an industry practice to use a series of external metal mesh. products such as copper, aluminum, phosphorous bronze wire. interwoven with carbon, nickel coated interwoven carbon fiber,. and nickel coated non-woven veils
  • Keeping cool with carbon
    For automotive applications where nonconductivity is important, partially carbonized fibers fit the bill. The original PAN fiber is oxidized at 190 to 280 C for 5 hr to partially carbonize it. The result is approximately 60% carbon content. Firewall insulation of VW Gold IV with covering felt

  • Joining Composites
    used for composites. Several factors should be considered when specifying fasteners for composite materials: Aluminum and stainless-steel fasteners expand and contract when exposed to temperature extremes, as in aircraft applications. In carbon-fiber composites, contraction and expansion
  • Lighting Strike Test Results
    nacelle applications subjected to lightning strike effects, it has been an industry practice to use a series of external metal mesh products such as copper, aluminum,. phosphorous bronze wire interwoven with carbon, nickel coated interwoven carbon fiber, and nickel coated non-woven veils. Certain
  • Sewing lessons for aerospace engineers
    lighter. In aerospace, weight certainly matters. Every pound shaved away brings higher payload capacities or lower fuel costs. About a quarter of the Airbus A380 structure, for example, will be lightweight carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics (CFRPs). The parts include the central wing box, wing flaps
  • Superstrong nuts and bolts
    reinforced with long-carbon fibers, Icotec's lightweight nuts and bolts sport ultrahigh specific strengths of up to 2.4 million psi/lb/in.3 This contrasts to aluminum and titanium with specific strengths of about 0.2 million and 1.2 million psi/lb/ in.3, respectively. The composite's semicrystalline
  • Medical Device Link .
    . New developments in carbon-fiber-reinforced (CFR) polymer composite materials have made the material an attractive alternative to the metallic materials traditionally used in implant development. CFR polyetheretherketone (PEEK) composites offer design freedom not readily achievable with other
