Performance Evaluation of Different Types of Composite Materials in Aerospace Applications: A Review
The use of composite materials is increasing day by day, especially in aircraft structural parts and in different aerospace applications. There is wide scope to study, to research the properties and performance of different composite materials for proper selection of specific material for desired application. Epoxy Composite Materials get affected by moisture as there is moisture absorption takes place. This paper presents a review of FRC materials used in aerospace applications such as CFRP, GFRP and Aramid Fiber reinforced polymer, their preparation methods and different test for performance evaluation. In performance evaluation there is study of tensile test, compression test, 3 point bending test, hardness test, impact test, test for flexural strength, moisture abortion test. The need of performance evaluation is to find out perfect materials for desired applications.
