This project is intended to develop the technology to form high performance plastics reinforced with carbon fibre (polymer composites) in order to produce lighter parts to replace conventional metallic parts. As the parts may be exposed to fire during use, a comparison between different material systems under fire exposure is also required to have a better understanding of those materials in this condition and if they would withstand the necessary requirements. The proposed project may contribute to accelerate the integration of plastic composites in gas turbine engine components of the partner organization, and offer potential cost savings coupled with possible component weight reductions.
