The Re-emergence of Aerospace Metals
Composites may have been the aerospace industry’s darling over the past few years, but the use of metals in aircraft systems and components has not gone away and is not expected to any time soon. Whether airframers are designing an all-new aircraft or trending more toward substantial redesigns of existing types, the end goal is the same: improved fuel efficiency.
In this on-demand webcast from SAE, the editors of Aerospace Engineering, industry experts will discuss some of the latest technological breakthroughs and challenges facing engineers tasked with making thorough use of high-strength metals in various aircraft systems and structures while simultaneously reducing weight, improving fuel efficiency, and maintaining structural integrity.
