Aerospace and Space Materials
- Department of Materials Engineering
The materials characteristics of the main properties of the airspace and space materials. Specific requirements for the
materials with their aerospace applications. The optimal choice of the materials for airspace and space structures while
respecting the basic requirements relating to the weight, durability and safe operation.
The main groups of materials used in construction panels of the airframe and engines. Aluminium alloys, commercially
pure titanium and its alloys, magnesium alloys, nickel-based super-alloys as well as cobalt alloys and high-strength steel.
Engineering plastics, structural ceramics, fibre and particle composites.
