Applications

IsoTruss® composite grid structures can be employed in almost any structural application.  Civil infrastructure examples range from lightweight, pre-assembled, three-dimensional reinforcement for concrete structures to stand alone structural columns.  Exciting aerospace applications range from efficient aircraft structures to rigid, lightweight satellite structures.

For many structural applications, IsoTruss® composite grid structures offer a major improvement in structural performance relative to more conventional composite configurations, such as traditional shell or sandwich structures.  Composite grid structures take full advantage of the mechanical properties of continuous fiber composite materials by creating open structures that orient bundles of unidirectional fiber in the primary load paths.
