Composite Applications, Manufacturing and Vision Forward

Abstract: Structural composite materials have a legacy in aerospace applications where the focus has traditionally been on performance.  Light weighting efforts across the transportation industry is putting substantial pressure on the composites manufacturing industry to meet the need for high rate, high volume and low cost solutions.  Materials, manufacturing technologies and processes must evolve to meet the demands of new markets.
