Metal−Polymer Composites Materials

Environmental sustainability is one of the main challenges faced by today’s aviation industry. Aerospace structures require high strength and stiffness; thus, they have traditionally been made from metals. However, composite materials are gaining increased use in aircraft and industry to reduce weight, contributing to a significant reduction in fuel consumption and carbon footprint. The use […]

Structural Health Monitoring, the MORPHO approach

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technologies for damage detection, diagnosis, and prognosis in aerospace structures are recognized as a key solution to increase aviation safety and to simultaneously decrease operating, maintenance, and repair costs. SHM enables a novel maintenance approach based on the actual condition of the airframe, mitigating operating costs induced by scheduled inspections. The […]
