If you’re an engineer, composites are likely becoming a part of your day-to-day work. No longer just for aerospace and marine applications, recent advancements in manufacturing have made composites less expensive and more commonly used in transportation, industrial design, sporting goods and much more.
As composite use increases, so does the challenge of how to join composite parts together and to other materials, such as steel or aluminum. To maximize your design’s performance, consider:
