Technology Integration: To fully understand the relative payoff of emerging technologies, a systems analysis capability is essential in the development of a credible assessment of the impact of NASA aeronautics technologies on the U.S. industry.
Composites: The aircraft industry’s resistance to using composites is one of economics.
Composites: In FY 1995, the composites element will be initiated to develop and validate at full-scale the composite structures technology, including validation of design concepts, structural materials, and manufacturing methods, required for manufacturing composite wings while saving weight and cost compared to conventional metal commercial transports.
Lightweight Composite Panels for the Trucking Industry - Truckinfo.net (890 words)
Essentially the strength of the composite panel depends on its overall size, the surface material used, and the density of the cells inside it, the thicker the core, the higher the stiffness and strength of the panel.
Composites designed for heavy commercial applications such as aircraft manufacturing, aerospace industry, oil exploration and military markets utilize high-strength, continuous fibers such as polyurethane foam or other dynamic materials to ensure a rigid panel that can withstand wear and tear due to loading stresses or mechanical strain.
The transportation industry is welcoming composite technology which may soon replace wood and metal as the material of choice.
