From aerospace and automotive, to marine and industrial applications, the use of composite materials and complex composites design have become increasingly prevalent. The prevalence of composites design is attributed to the unique mechanical properties of inherent in composite materials, these including but not limited to:
- High strength-to-weight ratio: Composite materials are extremely lightweight and can offer incredibly mechanical strength, per unit of weight.
- Resistance to corrosion: Unlike many metal alternatives, composite materials are resistant to corrosion, thus improving the lifespan of composite components.
- Durability: Attributed to the structure of component materials, the durability is incredibly improved, thus improving the overall lifespan of the material.
- Flexible design: Due to the nature of construction of composite materials, through various configurations of ply lay-up, the application in composites design allows for components with complex geometries to be easier to construct, at a lower cost.
While the application and associated advantages to composite materials and composite design are profound, the design process for composite components can be complex and extensive. Thankfully, our team of engineers at Intratech can assist with the design, lay-up, and workflow of composite components.
