Increasing performances & requirements of composite structure & materials:

 

Key Focus

  • High-performance composites designed for deep sea & racing applications
  • Tough conditions for new materials
  • The need of a mastered approach

 

Marine (Increasing performances & requirements of composite structure & materials)

 

  • High-performance composites designed for deep sea & racing applications
  • Tough conditions for new materials
  • The need of a mastered approach

 

Deeper, faster, stronger are definitely the keywords of this forum. During the last two decades, composite materials have offered the opportunity to develop underseas applications and racing yachts, where both stiffness and strength were the design criterias for light structures. The applications presented here result from a consistent effort to improve and optimize the use of composite materials. The development of materials is also underway, challenging some tricky limits like fire resistance or sustainability. This progress must go with rules to establish damage tolerance and safety, as aerospace industry had to settle many decades ago. But the marine environment can be much more severe, as yachts are designed to resist extreme unexpected and unpredictable loadings.
