1 Application of Advanced Composites to Helicopter Structures Strengths and Weaknesses Introduction Composites have found their place in aerospace and in the sporting goods industry, where they have displaced many metal applications. The replacement of metal by composite directly has major pitfalls. When an isotropic metal is replaced by an orthotropic system, care must be taken to include biased material to overcome the weakness (resin matrix) in the transverse direction thus adding more weight. This Achilles Heel (resin) is aggravated by the operating environment of moisture and temperature causing a major degradation in strength. 1

9 Application of Advanced Composites to Helicopter Structures Strengths and Weaknesses In a multidirectional laminate, the stiff fibers in adjacent plies will not let much contraction or swelling take place. Therefore... due to matrix contraction. due to matrix expansion. 9

10 Application of Advanced Composites to Helicopter Structures Strengths and Weaknesses Any moisture absorbed into the resin causes each ply to try to swell in the 2-direction. Fiber Direction 10

11 Application of Advanced Composites to Helicopter Structures Strengths and Weaknesses At any temperature below the cure temperature, each ply in a laminate wants to contract in the 2-direction. Built-in thermal stresses resulting from post cure cool-down to room temperature must be considered in the structural analysis. Fiber Direction 11
