... aircraft. For instance, the use of MMCs reduces the maximum deflection of the leading-edge tip of the ventral fin in an F-l6 aircraft by over 50%, reducing the aerodynamic loads and increasing the service life from 400 to 8000 h. Aluminum alloy skins used in the honeycomb structure of the fin were replaced...
