Advanced Composite Materials

Advanced Composite Materials (ACM) are materials composed of fibers embedded in a matrix of resins, metals, or ceramics. The fibers provide strength and stiffness while the matrix material controls and distributes the loads between the fibers. Depending on the fibers and matrix material chosen, ACMs can be tailored for particular applications, for example, to be light weight, stiff, strong and resistant to fatigue, corrosion, and temperature. ACMs have been used in many industries such as aerospace, automotive, and sporting goods due to their advantageous properties. Important works such as the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Chevy Corvette C7 are all constructed using ACMs.
