  • 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
  • Curved extrusion earns top honors
    an erector set. " The 6 6-in. extrusion can be anodized and custom cut to give an added punch to the look of trade-show booths and other rigging applications. Chord styles include aluminum, carbon fiber, and plexiglas. ), took Industrial honors for a 7-kg end cap for a uranium rod holder used
