    Abstract

    A considerable factor in the cost of a composite structure is the cost of fabrication. Because composite fabrication techniques differ substantially from metal fabrication techniques, new technology is required. This chapter summarizes progress in the areas of automated tape layup, filament winding, and molding plus secondary bonding.

    Keywords:

    composite materials, fabrication, moldings, filament winding, boron
