Van Wie Johns Hopkins University Foreword This Second Edition of Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures edited by Alan Baker, Stuart Dutton and Donald Kelly is an updated, comprehensive treatment of a stimulating and challenging subject in the aerospace field with ever increasing importance. The First Edition has proven to be a valuable part of the AIAA Education Book Series, and we are delighted to welcome this new edition to the series. The lead editor of the First Edition, Brian Hoskin, has since passed away, but the new editorial team has done an admirable job of maintaining the high standards of the earlier book. The Second Edition features considerable new and updated material, and there are now 16 chapters and an appendix. The evolution of this edition is traced in the Preface. The AIAA Education Series aims to cover a very broad range of topics in the general aerospace field, including basic theory, applications and design. A complete list of titles published in the series can be found on the last pages in this volume. The philosophy of the series is to develop textbooks that can be used in a college or university setting, instructional materials for intensive continuing education and professional development courses, and also books that can serve as the basis for independent self study for working professionals in the aerospace field. We are constantly striving to expand and upgrade the scope and content of the series, so suggestions for new topics and authors are always welcome. JOSEPH A, SCHETZ Editor-in-Chief AIAA Education Series vii Foreword to first edition Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures, edited by B. C. Hoskin and A. A. Baker, is the latest addition to the AIAA Education Series inaugurated in 1984. The series represents AIAA's response to the need for textbooks and monographs in highly specialized disciplines of aeronautics and astronautics. Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures, just such a case in point, should prove particularly timely because the field has surged in composite applications. Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures provides a broad introduction to virtually all aspects of the technology of composite materials for aircraft structural applications: the basic theory of fiber reinforcements; material characteristics of the commonly used fibers, resins, and composite systems; components form and manufacture; structural mechanics of composite laminates; composite joints; environmental effects; durability and damage tolerance; nondestructive inspection (NDI) and repair procedures; aircraft applications; and airworthiness considerations. This text, expanded and updated, has been prepared from notes used in a series of lectures given at the Aeronautical Research Laboratories (ARL), Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. All lecturers were officers in either the Structures or Aircraft Materials Divisions of ARL. The table of contents gives the names of the lecturers, together with their topics. The lectures originated with a request to ARL from the Australian Department of Aviation' s Airworthiness Branch. The Director of the Aeronautical Research Laboratories, Department of Defense, Australia, has authorized publication of the expanded and updated text by AIAA. J. S. PRZEMIENIECKI Editor-in-Chief AIAA Education Series ix Preface This book is a revised and extended edition to the original 1986 book Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures, edited by Brian Hoskin and Alan Baker of the then Aeronautical Research Laboratories in Melbourne, Australia. In 1997, staff responsible for the AIAA Education Series invited Brian and Alan to produce a sequel, but sadly Brian had passed away some years ago. However, Alan was still working full-time as Research Leader of Aerospace Composite Structures at the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and actively engaged in the research activities of the Cooperative Research Center for Advanced Composite Structures Limited (CRC-ACS), which had been established in 1991. This was fortuitous, as Alan was able to call upon the support of a relatively large team of experts working in the CRC-ACS and its member organizations, to undertake the requested revision. The work on the revised edition began in 1998, as a CRC-ACS education program task led by Alan and supported by the then Director, Dr Gordon Long. The task progressed slowly as most of the contributors were heavily committed, however it continued to be supported by the new CRC-ACS Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr Ian Mair. In order to assist Alan in what seemed to be an everincreasing task, two co-editors joined him: Mr Stuart Dutton, Deputy CEO of the CRC-ACS, and Prof. Don Kelly, Professor at the University of New South Wales. Stuart and Don are widely respected in the Australian composites research community for their contributions to the advancement of the design and manufacture of advanced composite structures. Whilst much has changed in composites technology since the original book was written, some topics (at the level required) have not changed that much, so they are incorporated into this book more or less unchanged. In particular, the material in the chapter on Structural Analysis by Brian Hoskin has been retained, essentially unchanged. Also, the chapter on Basic Principles, although renamed, is much the same as in the original edition. The remainder of the book is significantly different from the original, except that some of the figures have been recycled. There are now 16 chapters and an appendix, which together provide an outstanding overview and, in many areas, a very detailed expos6 of the most important aspects of composite materials for aircraft structures. Whilst this book has been produced with the support of the CRC-ACS, the efforts of each of the contributors from the CRC-ACS and its members, such as DSTO and Hawker de Havilland, are gratefully acknowledged. Finally, I wish to xii PREFACE congratulate the three co-editors for their commitment to this task over the last few years and their success in completing this valuable text book. MURRAY L.

Overview 1.1 General Since the first edition of this textbook 1 in 1986, the use of high-performance polymer-matrix fiber composites in aircraft structures has grown steadily, although not as dramatically as predicted at that time. This is despite the significant weight-saving and other advantages that these composites can provide. The main reason for the slower-than-anticipated take-up is the high cost of aircraft components made of composites compared with similar structures made from metal, mainly aluminum, alloys. Other factors include the high cost of certification of new components and their relatively low resistance to mechanical damage, low through-thickness strength, and (compared with titanium alloys) temperature limitations. Thus, metals will continue to be favored for many airframe applications. The most important polymer-matrix fiber material and the main subject of this and the previous book, Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures, is carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy (carbon/epoxy). Although the raw material costs of this and similar composites will continue to be relatively high, with continuing developments in materials, design, and manufacturing technology, their advantages over metals are increasing. However, competition will be fierce with continuing developments in structural metals. In aluminum alloys developments include improved toughness and corrosion resistance in conventional alloys; new lightweight alloys (such as aluminum lithium); low-cost aerospace-grade castings; mechanical alloying (high-temperature alloys); and super-plastic forming. For titanium, they include use of powder preforms, casting, and super-plastic-forming/diffusion bonding. Advanced joining techniques such as laser and friction welding, automated riveting techniques, and high-speed (numerically controlled) machining also make metallic structures more affordable. The growth in the use of composites in the airframes in selected aircraft is illustrated in Figure 1.1. However, despite this growth, the reality is, as illustrated in Figure 1.2 for the U.S. Navy F-18 fighter, that airframes (and engines) will continue to be a mix of materials. These will include composites of various types and a range of metal alloys, the balance depending on structural and economic factors. 2 COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES 40 35 30 25 20 E 15 X 10 e 5 < 0 JSF-O B2 t V-22 4~.22 Rafale AV8B F-18E/F A320 F-18A •• F-15~ F-16A 767 737 • 1970 1980 A~0 ~77 MD11 1990 C17A 2000 2010 Approximate Year of Introduction Fig. 1.1 Growth of use of advanced composites in airframe structures. In this introductory chapter, the incentives or drivers for developing improved materials for aircraft applications are discussed. This is followed by a brief overview of fiber composites, including polymer, metal, and ceramic-matrix composites as well as hybrid metal/composite laminates. Other than polymermatrix composites, these composites are not considered elsewhere in this book and so are discussed in this chapter for completeness.

INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW 3 1.2 Driversfor Improved Airframe Materials Weight saving through increased specific strength or stiffness is a major driver for the development of materials for airframes. 2 However, as listed in Table 1.1, there are many other incentives for the introduction of a new material. A crucial issue in changing to a new material, even when there are clear performance benefits such as weight saving to be gained, is affordability. This includes procurement (up front) cost (currently the main criterion) and throughlife support cos ...
