Application of Composites related to Aircraft and Automobile industry

3.B] State the application of Composites related to the Aircraft and Automobile industry


Alloys of Al and other low-density metals like Li, Mg, and Ti gained much attention as there is much concern about vehicle weight reduction. Al-Li alloys enjoy much more attention especially as they are very useful in the aircraft and aerospace industries. Common applications of Al alloys include beverage cans, automotive parts, bus bodies, aircraft structures, etc.

Composites are being considered to make lighter, safer, and more fuel-efficient vehicles. A composite is composed of a high-performance fiber (such as carbon or glass) in a matrix material (epoxy polymer) that when combined provides enhanced properties compared with the individual materials by themselves.
