Foreign study We have taken some sources that might help our research paper to give broader explanation on how composite materials help the aviation industry to evolve through the past years with the help of this foreign study that explains how composite materials helped the industry and especially the environment. Lightweight composite materials such as carbon fibre-reinforced epoxy resins and glass fibre reinforced laminates are increasingly finding application in aircraft to replace traditional heavier metal structures. In commercial aircraft, this is driven largely by the high cost of aviation fuel and the introduction of legislation setting limits on the emission of greenhouse gases. Already the Airbus A380 is constructed of around 25% composites while the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” uses about twice this amount. Composites are especially adept at achieving overall weight reduction but also facilitate the
