4. Effect of cycling on the residual properties of cyanate matrix composites. 9 References 37 Summary The pre-design studies conducted at Aerospatiale, BAe and DASA indicate that, because of the drastic economical and technical requirements defined for future supersonic civil transport aircraft, an important share of the structure of this aircraft will have to be made out of polymeric matrix composites and advanced lightweight aluminium alloys. For the aluminium alloys, studies were oriented in two directions: .

The ingots for production of the rivet wire could be made by either DC casting or mechanical alloying, depending upon the alloy composition. 4. Ways to make Al-Li alloys cheaper. Using established DC casting, manufacture of Al-Li ingots currently entails use of the highest purity (and most expensive) grades of elemental lithium, as the standard sodium and potassium impurities in this metal are particularly deleterious to fracture toughness and ductility of the subsequent alloy. There may be possibilities to reduce overall costs by, for example, using less expensive and lower grade lithium at the outset, but exploiting the vacuum refining routes used by the steel and superalloy industries to remove the impurities from the resultant Al-Li alloy.

3 times the thickness. On the other hand, the stringers have to be resistant to stress corrosion cracking, which requires a rather coarse microstructure in directions perpendicular to the applied stress. Thus the stringer strips need a grain structure with a large aspect ratio, fine in the transverse direction to maintain formability, and coarse in the transverse direction to provide good stress corrosion cracking resistance. 14 [8] shows the dependence of threshold stress for stress corrosion cracking as a function of the aspect ratio of the grains, together with the flow stress during stringer manufacture.
