Glare

  1. 1.  GLARE is a new aerospace structural material composed ofalternating, bonded layers of aluminum alloy and glass fiberreinforced plastic. GLARE looks the same as aluminum sheeting, but it is constructedfrom layers. First a thin layer of aluminum, then a thin layer ofstrong fiberglass, and then another layer of aluminum. The material thus obtained combines the properties of both themetal and the fiber. The metal makes it possible to deform GLARE plastically, whilethe fibers give GLARE strength.
  2. 2.  Post Impact LayeredAluminum Facesheets•Layered AluminumFacesheets
  3. 3.  GLARE is more fire resistive GLARE is more resistant to damage GLARE is less sensitive to metal fatigue. GLARE is light in weight• Used in construction of panels• Used in Upper fuselage• Reduced about 500 Kg in weight
  4. 4.  Its expensive Not well known, hence restricting its use tothe aerospace industry
  5. 5.  Its expensive Not well known, hence restricting its use tothe aerospace industry
