Sometimes we just ignore all the academia, step back and try to look at what is
really happening. It's a combination of subjective reasoning and objective
observation that sometimes leads to problem solving.
"90% of the problem" OBSERVED with composites is buckling then compression
Carbon is very stiff so it doesn't start to buckle. This quality when applied
to a complex structure with varing loads on different axis is less likely to
