Reducing weight while increasing strength through use of composites need not be confined to things that move. Static applications have just as much to gain through new techniques as the automotive world has and many industries are only just beginning to realise the full potential of this highly adaptable material.
A carbon fibre support beam for instance can be much stronger than its steel equivalent, yet much lighter. As such it can bear a greater load while being far easier to install and cheaper to transport. This not only has the potential to be directly positive for areas such as construction and logistics, but perhaps less obviously there are potential knock on and environmental benefits to be derived from utilising lightweight composities in this way.
