Abstract

The primary motivation for the insertion of metal-matrix composites (MMCs) into aeronautical systems is the excellent balance of specific strength and stiffness offered by MMCs. This article provides information on the aerostructural, aeropropulsion, and aeronautical subsystem applications of MMCs. The applications include ventral fin, fuel access door covers, helicopter blade sleeve, fan exit guide vane, nozzle actuator piston rod, nozzle actuator links, T-1 racks, and hydraulic manifold.
