Aerospace Materials and Applications addresses materials selection and use in aircraft, spacecraft, launch vehicles, and propulsion systems and power systems. Advances in aerospace systems are strongly dependent on advances in materials and processing technologies. In the past hundred years of powered flight aircraft structures have evolved around advances in materials that are lighter and stronger. Aircraft propulsion systems are constantly striving to become more fuel efficient via reductions in mass and improved capability for materials to operate at higher temperatures for longer periods. Gas turbine engines that power modern aircraft are being designed to run at higher pressures and temperatures to generate more thrust per pound of engine mass. Similar considerations apply to rocket engines where the power densities are much higher. Spacecraft are designed to operate in the harsh radiation environments of outer space. In-space propulsion and power systems are key components of spacecraft and advanced materials enable these systems. Hence it is important for aerospace systems designers to have a good understanding of how specific materials will perform in their systems. Aerospace Materials and Applications clearly shows the preferred approach to selecting materials given the unique requirements for design and construction of aerospace systems.
