Carbon Fiber In Flight Carbon fiber has gone to the moon on spacecraft, but it is also used widely in aircraft components and structures, where its superior strength to weight ratio far exceeds that of any metal.
Sporting Goods Its application in sports goods ranges from the stiffening of running shoes to ice hockey stick, tennis racquets and golf clubs.A new military application is announced almost every day.Perhaps the latest and most exotic military application is for small flapping wings on miniaturised flying drones, used for surveillance missions.Of course, we don’t know about all military applications – some carbon fiber uses will always remain part of ‘black ops’ - in more ways than one.‘Shells’ (hulls for rowing) are built from it, and many lives have been saved on motor racing circuits by its strength and damage tolerance in body structures.It is used in crash helmets too, for rock climbers, horse riders and motor cyclists – in fact in any sport where there is a danger of head injury.
Military The applications in the military are very wide ranging – from planes and missiles to protective helmets, providing strengthening and weight reduction across all military equipment.
It takes energy to move weight – whether it is a soldier’s personal gear or a field hospital, and weight saved means more weight moved per gallon of gas.
By Todd Johnson Every day, a new application is found for carbon fiber.
What started out forty years ago as a highly exotic material is now a part of our everyday lives.
These thin filaments, a tenth the thickness of a human hair, are now available in a wide range of useful forms.
The fibers are bundled, woven and shaped into tubes and sheets (up to ½” thick) for construction purposes, supplied as cloth for molding, or just regular thread for filament winding.
