From the beginning of the 1980s, the Delft University of Technology
in the Netherlands developed fibre metal laminates such as Glare.
This new family of hybrid materials consists of thin metal layers
bonded together by fibres embedded in an adhesive, thus creating a
material possessing a mixture of metal and composite
characteristics. Introducing new technologies in the aircraft
industry is not to be taken lightly. By nature, the aircraft
industry is rather conservative; innovations must be proven - a
paradox actually - in all possible ways before they can be
introduced in real aircraft structures. Not only do technical
aspects play a role in this respect; historical, cultural,
economical and political issues are equally important. This book
deals with the less technical and non-technical issues related to
Glare's introduction in aviation from different perspectives.
