  10. Self-Healing Adhesives and Composites

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF06T025

    The replacement of metal aerospace structures with polymer matrix composites (PMCs) provides up to 50% weight savings. This reduction in weight will enable significant gains in performance (increased range, payload, and velocities) and decreased costs. One of the obstacles to the widespread use of composites is their susceptibility to mechanical and thermal damage, particularly at joints between ...
