[automatically translated] The ever increasing demands on structural design aviation / aerospace materials with high mechanical performance, resulted in recent decades the spread of polymer matrix composite materials (Polymer Matrix Composites, PMCs) mainly reinforced with carbon fiber (Carbon Fiber Reinforced plastic, CFRP). The major limitations in the use of these composites were caused by high sensitivity to environmental agents and at low operating temperatures; Furthermore, such materials do not bear exposure to the fire, and this because of the easy inflammability not only of the matrix but also the fibers. In order to provide a composite that combines the structural performance of CFRP, a good resistance to high temperatures and fire, in the present work we have investigated the use of a hybrid composite consisting of a CFRP laminate joined to the ceramic matrix composite laminae (Ceramic Matrix Composite, CMC). Preliminary experimental tests carried out for the development of the model and subsequent numerical simulations have allowed to verify the goodness of the proposed solution.
