Stretch forming of thermoplastic fibre-metal laminates
Fibre--metal laminates are sandwich materials comprised of altering layers of fibre-reinforced composites and metal alloys. These materials can offer superior properties compared to the monolithic constituents such as superior specific strength compared to metals and better impact and fatigue resistance than composite materials. The use of fibre--metal laminates is currently restricted to specialised applications where the superior properties justify the high cost. This is due to the increased...[Show more]
