Titanium composites: Ready for flight

Abstract:

The application of titanium matrix composites (TMC) in aeroengine compressor design is discussed. TMC will allow radical changes in aeroengine compressor design from the conventional disc and dove-tail blade arrangement to a TMC bladed ring, termed a bling. All TMC manufacturing technique aim to minimize the total thermal exposure of the fibre to the Ti matrix during lay-up and consolidation. Several investigations have concentrated on the manufacture, properties, and design aspects of metal ...
