The characteristic mechanical behavior of the hybrid composite was noted in the load deformation properties when subjected to flexural loading.
"For example", Al Hammadi said, "a regular vehicle needs 12.50 litres to complete 100km, while the hybrid vehicle needs around 8.25 litres to cover the same distance, and estimated the amount of carbon dioxide emissions of the regular vehicle per day to be 182kg, while the amount of emissions left by hybrid composite per day is 121kg."
Some promising emerging approaches are focused field applications of rigidified FRP tube arches, hybrid composite beams, and reinforced thermoplastics.
The Infinite Possibility Award went to Harbor Technologies of Brunswick, Me., for its hybrid composite beam for bridge construction.
It has been shown recently that the hybrid composite can offer more attractive engineering properties because the presence of one fibre enables more efficient utilization of the potential properties of the other fibre [7-8].
Inspection revealed most of the AD rivets were severely corroded because the cowlings are constructed with a hybrid composite laminate.
