Historically, composites supplemented secondary aircraft structures, but recent technological advances enabled their use in primary aircraft structure components including fuselage, wings, doors, nacelles, tail structures, and more.

Manufacturers must always quality test their composites at every step of the process—from design to final product—to ensure that parts and components remain free of damage and compliant with a broad spectrum of industry standards. 

We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to educate you on everything you need to know about the different composite testing methods in the aerospace industry, including:

  • - Areal Weight Testing
  • - Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
  • - Filled-Hole Tension/Compression Testing
  • - Other important details about composite testing
