Carbon Fiber Composites and Aerospace

High modulus carbon fibers are lightweight, rigid, dimensionally stable and thermally conductive, and are therefore used in satellite structures, solar panels and antennas very early on. Expanded solar panels on today’s satellites are mostly made of carbon fiber composite materials, and some key components of the space station and the world’s round-trip transportation systems often use carbon fiber composites as reinforcing materials.
Carbon fiber reinforced resin composite materials for space shuttle doors, robots and pressure vessels. The United States Discovery space shuttle thermal tile, is critical, can guarantee that it can safely repeat flight. High-temperature refractory fiber composite FRIC-HRSI; reinforced carbon (FRSI); high-temperature refractory fiber composite FRIC-HRSI; high-temperature refractory fiber composite FRIC-HRSI; / Carbon material RCC; metal; silica fabric. The RCC, which enhances the carbon / carbon material, most importantly, enables the space shuttle to withstand the maximum temperature of 1700 ° C that the atmosphere is exposed to.
In the civilian sector, 550 of the world’s largest aircraft A380 CFRP because of the large-scale use, creating a miracle in flight history. 25% of the weight of the aircraft parts made of composite materials, of which 22% of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). These components include: speed brakes, vertical and horizontal stabilizers (used as fuel tanks), rudders, elevators, ailerons, flap spoilers, landing gear doors, fairings, vertical wing boxes, rudders, elevators, upper cabin floors Beam, rear sealed baffle, rear pressure cabin, rear fuselage, horizontal tail and aileron are made of CFRP.
China’s first all-carbon fiber composite structure, hydrogen fuel cell power unmanned testing machine “Thunderbird” (LN60F) in Shenyang, the first successful flight of an airport. The world’s best-selling carbon fiber two-seater sports aircraft, the use of light carbon fiber composite material advantages: First, the empty weight-to-weight ratio, the machine’s air weight of 230 kg, the maximum take-off weight of 450 kg, air weight-to-weight ratio Up to 0.957; Second, a substantial reduction in the number of tooling, mold, easy to multi-species, small batch production, reduce production costs. The success of UAV flight test, in the field of new energy aircraft development has a pioneering historical significance. In the country to promote the development of general aviation and application of clean and environmentally friendly energy policy under the guidance of the successful development of this type of verification machine has a high social benefits and broad application prospects.
