The major objective of this book was to identify issues related to the introduction of new materials and the effects that advanced materials will have on the durability and technical risk of future civil aircraft throughout their service life. The committee investigated the new materials and structural concepts that are likely to be incorporated into next generation commercial aircraft and the factors influencing application decisions. Based on these predictions, the committee attempted to identify the design, characterization, monitoring, and maintenance issues that are critical for the introduction of advanced materials and structural concepts into future aircraft.well as fairing and fillet panels, landing gear doors, engine cowl doors, and other secondary structures. ... laminate constructions, such as that used on primary structures on the Airbus A320 and Boeing 777, is not adequate enough to establish damage trends. ... by the manufacturera#39;s structural repair manual and the appropriate industry group, the Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee.
