Potential of fibre reinforced plastics in mechanical engineering
Due to their high specific strength and stiffness fibre reinforced plastics (FRP) are not only significant in aviation and aerospace. Apart from potential for lightweight construction these materials offer additional possibilities for often disregarded applications helping to take an exceptional position for mechanical engineering. This is exemplary shown in the following article. However, there has to be a learning process before handling FRP efficient in that field. To assess the fitness of these materials in the right way a method will be developed to identify potential applications.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
