With the stakes inevitably being so high, the design of even the humblest of aircraft can present huge challenges to engineers. Aircraft must be light in order to get and stay aloft, even while they have to be strong to withstand the forces they encounter while in flight. In order to overcome these dilemmas and others, designers make use of a huge range of materials throughout the typical aircraft to most precisely satisfy the requirements relevant to each particular part.
This means that in addition to the aluminum, steel, and titanium that are so integral to many aircraft, mechanics and technicians can expect to encounter many more of nonmetallic kinds. The new Flight Mechanic series on nonmetallic aircraft materials guides readers through the whole range of these materials aircraft maintenance and repair professionals must be familiar with, how the materials behave, and how they must be treated and maintained.
From now-rare nonmetallic materials like wood that were once widespread to today’s high-tech composites, the four-part Flight Mechanic report is the single best resource for those seeking an accessible, functional grounding in this important subject. With the final installment now online along with the others at access, as with all Flight Mechanic updates, is free and open to all.
