Outlook on ecologically improved composites for aviation interior and secondary structures. "CEAS Aeronautical Journal", 24 Abril 2018, p. 1-11.
dc.description.abstractToday, mainly man-made materials such as carbon and glass fibres are used to produce composite parts in aviation. Renewable materials such as natural fibres or bio-sourced resin systems have not found their way into aviation, yet. The project ECO-COMPASS aims to evaluate the potential applications of ecologically improved composite materials in the aviation sector in an international collaboration of Chinese and European partners. Natural fibres such as flax and ramie will be used for different types of reinforcements and sandwich cores. Furthermore, the bio-based epoxy resins to substitute bisphenol-A based epoxy resins in secondary structures are under investigation. Adapted material protection technologies to reduce environmental influence and to improve fire resistance are needed to fulfil the demanding safety requirements in aviation. Modelling and simulation of chosen eco-composites aims for an optimized use of materials while a life cycle assessment aims to prove the ecological advantages compared to synthetic state-of-the-art materials. In this paper, the status of selected ecologically improved materials will be presented with an outlook for potential application in interior and secondary structures.
