  • Book
  • R-336
Published 2005-06-22 by SAE International in United States
This second edition has been extensively updated to keep pace with the growing use of composite materials in commercial aviation. A worldwide reference for repair technicians and design engineers, the book is an outgrowth of the course syllabus that was developed by the Training Task Group of SAE's Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee (CACRC) and published as SAE AIR 4938, Composite and Bonded Structure Technician Specialist Training Document. Topics new to this edition include: Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) Methods Fasteners for Composite Materials A Method for the Surface Preparation of Metals Prior to Adhesive Bonding Repair Design Although this book has been written primarily for use in aircraft repair other applications including marine and automotive are also covered.

This paper has the same title as a book that will be mentioned later and is intended to cover briefly some of the background knowledge needed by those responsible for making repairs to composite components and structures. Composite repairs, like all practical activities, require manual skill in handling tools and materials. It is not always fully realized just how much background knowledge is required to ensure that the many aspects of these repairs are covered adequately. The ""hands-on"" skills need to be supplemented by a significant amount of understanding of the materials and design requirements. Over the last ten years a vast amount of work has been done to try to standardize repairs and techniques, to raise standards, and to improve the economics of composite material usage. This paper provides a short history of the effort put in and the results achieved.
