About this book


This book addresses the emerging needs of the aerospace industry by discussing recent developments and future trends of aeronautic materials. It is aimed at advancing existing materials and fostering the ability to develop novel materials with less weight, increased mechanical properties, more functionality, diverse manufacturing methods, and recyclability. The development of novel materials and multifunctional materials has helped to increase efficiency and safety, reduce costs, and decrease the environmental foot print of the aeronautical industry. In this book, integral metallic structures designed by disruptive concepts, including topology optimization and additive manufacturing, are highlighted.

  • Presents a dedicated text to aeronautical materials
  • Covers cutting-edge aspects of aerostructure design and processing technology
  • Highlights disruptive technologies such as topology optimization, additive manufacturing, and green manufacturing
