Improvement in terms of stiffness and strength in sandwich structures. The most popular is balsa. Substantial use has also been made of spruce, mahogany, redwood, pine, fir and many others. The reason for the popularity of balsa is its good strength at densities as low as 128kg/m3. When orientated in the sandwich so that the grain direction is perpendicular to the sandwich facings, the compressive strength of balsa, when measured at equal density, is higher than nearly all other cores, including some of the high performance honeycombs.

Diisseldorf, 26th February - 1st March 1985. M. , New York, 1990. pp 488-507. 1 INTRODUCTION Composites offer high mechanical properties due to low density, a proven corrosion resistance, damage tolerance and fatigue resistance, leading to a long and relatively maintenance-free working life. This, combined with the flexibility of the manufacturing process, makes composites extremely suitable materials for use in a marine environment.

Economical gain by using lightweight materials in aircraft. Aircraft engineers are always interested in saving weight. This becomes obvious on looking closely to the operation costs of a commercial plane [1,2]. 1 the total weight of an aircraft can be 16 17 CLARIFICATION OF WHAT ARE COMPOSITES divided into the weight of the frame, the payload and the weight of fuel. Most weight is concentrated in the airframe, and if weightsavings are possible the percentage increase in payload would be almost twice the percentage saving in airframe weight, therefore improving the economy of the aircraft significantly.
