Eco-efficient lightweight carbon-fiber reinforced polymer for environmentally greener commercial aviation industry

Abstract:

This research aims to perform comparative impact assessment for production of conventional aluminum alloy (AlMg3) used in aircraft fuselage and lighter weight carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP). The epoxy resin (EP), a thermosetting polymer typically impregnated with carbon fiber (CF) tows is assumed to be replaced by polypropylene (PP) which is a thermoplastic polymer. The assessment framework is demonstrated by postulating a scenario where AlMg3 in Boeing B737-800 fuselage is substitute...
