About This Topic
In the field of aerospace and automotive industries, composite and hybrid materials have proven to possess exceptional properties such as low-weight, high strength, and reliable damage tolerance. However, as we move towards more environmentally friendly designs, advancements on the properties and structural design of such components are necessary. This may include the use of thermoset-based and thermoplastic-based composite and fibre-metal laminates. For instance, clean aviation requires hydrogen tanks to be carried in the aeroplane which needs support from composite tanks to carry the loads. Additionally, recyclability and biodegradability are becoming more favourable in different industries to achieve a more sustainable design-manufacturing process. Therefore, new procedures to model such innovative material concepts are welcome for this special issue, especially if supported by experimental characterisations and/or validations. Investigations on the cure modelling and estimation of final properties after manufacturing of advanced composites and hybrid materials with an open research eye on the technical possibilities are also important. Furthermore, investigations on the feasibility of innovative composite and hybrid materials for different applications will enrich the current special issue.
