Abstract : The AGARD Structures and Materials Panel held a Specialists' Meeting to address Composite Repair of Military Aircraft. The meeting focused on two main areas, repair of metal structures using composite patches and repair of composite structures using composite or metal patches. The work presented had direct application to the maintenance and support of military aircraft. Repair of military aircraft provides both a means to extend the useful life of the airframe beyond the original design life and a method to maintain military readiness by returning damaged aircraft to service.
