Understanding the Limitations of Composite Materials

Here is a very interesting article and video about composite materials

“We recently managed to catch up with Phil Hall, Caterham Composites’ Managing Director, who kindly agreed to chat to us about some of the challenges that composites can introduce for engineers and how simulation technology to overcome them. During the discussion, Phil spoke of understanding the limitations of composite materials being vital to get the best out of them and I think that is an excellent way to approach the ongoing challenge. As engineers, if we do not fully understand the material characteristics we are dealing with then we will inevitably be inclined to add unnecessary material to be safe and we will therefore negate some of the weight advantages we were trying to take advantage of.”
