The use of non-metallic materials in aerospace vehicles has increased phenomenally in recent year. However, data and information have not been completely or appropriately disseminated in a manner which would be most useful to the designer of such vehicles. The purpose of this project was to survey the aerospace industry and agencies concerned with aerospace problems. In particular, this study was directed toward determining which materials, properties, and problem areas in non-metallics exist now or will exist in the future and which methods can be used to placed evaluated data and information into the hands of the designer. The following report presents results of the survey. It was determined that a Design Handbook or Manual on non-metallic materials will greatly benefit the aerospace field as a whole. Specific recommendations for such a handbook are presented in the report.
