Prospects for the Implementation of New Materials and Technologies in the Aerospace Industry


This article considers the main materials used to make aircraft, both fuselage and engines. First, the problems that force developers to introduce new materials in aircraft production are identified. We then present features of the introduction of heat-resistant titanium alloys, ways of improving the mechanical properties of parts made of titanium alloys, and methods of manufacturing complex details. Other promising materials for the aviation industry, such as high-entropy alloys, quasicrystals, carbon-carbon materials, and nickel foam, are also considered.
