You know - the ones that get really really excited about stretching.

I've never seen any on an aircraft; eyeglasses maybe.

I'm starting to think EngTips needs some sort of moderation for first time posters.  Too many poorly formed questions which sound suspiciously like undergrad homework questions.

RE: what are the hyperelastic materials used in aircraft

RE: what are the hyperelastic materials used in aircraft

i think British Aerospace uses super-plastically-formed Ti to make the access panels on Airbus wings.  does that count ?  

RE: what are the hyperelastic materials used in aircraft

Wouldn't super plastic be different from super elastic?  Super plastics have a number of applications.

RE: what are the hyperelastic materials used in aircraft

Rubber is also used in constrained-layer damping...when needed.
