Paper Abstract

Fiber reinforced composites offer excellent specific stiffness and strength and are therefore interesting for rotating machinery applications. Drive shafts are used to transfer motor torques in aircraft, vehicles or production lines. With the use of composite materials these shafts could be made lighter, with tailored mechanical properties, lower inertia and a benign failure behavior.
