The use of composite materials offers considerable potential for reducing structural weight and, therefore, increasing productivity of commercial aircraft. The application of composites must be performed selectively, as some structures offer considerable potential for cost effective use, whereas others are more cost effective as metal structures. Heavily loaded beams, columns, and stiffness critical control surfaces are at present the major areas of application of composite materials.
