Flaps & Ailerons 7-26-14:
A few months ago we had an article about wing
being done with NASA and Boeing. There must
be some new technology in the material sciences out there that companies
have discovered. Here's another company calledFlexsys,
that claims to have solved the material stress limits that have prevented
excessive bending of a material without damage. If you take a spoon out
of the silverware drawer and bend the handle 90 degrees to the spoon and
then let go of the spoon, well, we all know what will happen. The handle
will stay 90 degrees to the spoon. However, this newly discovered material
will allow the trailing edge of a wing to bend the same movements as a
flap or aileron and spring back to normal shape with no stress cracks or
wrinkles. I wonder if David
has anything to do with this?
