There was a turning out to be curiosity within the beginning of the idea of th- walled composite beams and in their incorporation in aeronautical/aerospace, automobile, helicopter and turbomachinery rotor blades, mechanical,civil and naval structures inthe final 20 years or so. The proliferation of the really expert literature, customarily within the kind of magazine/ complaints papers, and the task when it comes to workshops dedicated to this subject attest this curiosity. A decisive issue that has fueled thisgrowing job was once generatedby highdiversity and severity ofdemandsand working stipulations imposed on structural components involvedintheadvanced know-how. with a purpose to beable to outlive andful?ll theirmission inthe severe environmental stipulations inwhich they function, new materialsand new structural paradigms are required. the recent unique constructions need to supply better performances, unatta- capable bytheclassical constructions builtof conventional fabrics. Theadvent of complex composite fabrics, of shrewdpermanent materialsandfunctionally graded - terials (FGMs), have constituted the most powerful stimuli for suchdevelopments. furthermore, their incorporation is probably going to extend the use and functions of thin-walledbeam constructions. Thenew and stringent standards imposed on aeronautical/aerospace, turbomachinery and shaft structural platforms could be most sensible met through such new different types of fabric constructions.
