Composites in Future High Lift Applications


The use of composites in structural aircraft applications increased during the last four decades [ref. 1] from about 5% of the total structural weight in the A300 up to approximately 25% in the largest flying civil aircraft, the A380. This trend is representative for all types of civil or military aircrafts. A significant enhancement of 52% of composite materials is expected for new generation aircrafts like the A350XWB. Therefore, new advanced composite solutions are required to compete with today standards. Especially high lift devices like slats and flaps as well as the supporting components are challenging due to the variety of multi disciplinary influences on the structure itself and further effects on the overall aircraft design parameters. Two examples of high lift composite applications for future civil aircrafts are discussed in this paper: composite slat and composite flap support structures.
