Take a basic look at where composites got their start.
- [Instructor] In the early days, the use of composites…was fairly limited, but sometime in the early 60s,…with the emergence of boron filaments,…it gave birth to a new generation of composites.…Boron in conjunction with carbon fiber or graphite…creates a very high-strength fiber, and is now what's called…advanced composite design.…Until the 1960s, aluminum was basically used…everywhere for light weighting.…Again, once the introduction of boron came in,…with the carbon fiber, then it allowed a very strong…structural design component to be put into place…made out of a composite.…
By the 1980s, composites were already established…in major structural components in various industries,…such as space and aviation.…The increasing use of composites has basically lowered…the dependence in use of steel and aluminum…in aircraft frames.…
