Aeroengines will only satisfy the future market requirement if advances are made in material and manufacturing technology. Current aeroengine materials are reaching the limits of their development but composite materials have the potential to meet the increased requirements. The use of resin composites has increased and with further improvements could be used more extensively. Metal and ceramics composites are being considered where higher temperature capability is required. However there are a number of problems which are being addressed so that these newer composites can be so used to their full potential with confidence.
