Polymers in Aerospace Applications

Author:
This review report gives an overview of how polymers are used in aerospace applications. Some of the topics covered are composites, including thermosets, thermoplastics and nanocomposites; fiber reinforcement of composites; and specialized applications.

For each type of composite, the chemistry, cure methods, fabrication methods, mechanical properties, thermal properties and environmental degradation are considered.

From the applications’ perspective, the title discusses sealants, structural adhesives, foams, primer paint, shape memory alloys, electroactive devices, MEMS, vibration damping, NLO properties and ablative polymers.

This review report is accompanied by approximately 400 abstracts compiled from the iSmithers Polymer Library, the largest dedicated resource of polymer information in the world, to facilitate further reading on this subject. A subject index and a company index are included.
