Multifunctional Core Materials for Airframe Primary Structures, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Multifunctional Core Materials for Airframe Primary Structures, Phase I
As the use of composite materials on commercial airlines grows the technology of the composites must grow with it. Presently the efficiency gained by the utilization of core materials on composite structures can not be implemented into commercial aviation primary structures due to the poor impact performance of commercially available core materials. Patz Materials and Technologies proposes to develop a new multifunctional composite core material for airframe primary structures. The new composite core material will combine high impact performance with low weight, high acoustical absorption and high mechanical strength to greatly improve the structural efficiency of future commercial airframes.
