One development of this research has been the trailing edges of the wing of Airbus's latest plane, the A350.

This is the part that extends back and down from the wing as a plane comes into land.

"This is a component that takes the full load of those forces as you're travelling through the air at about 250mph - and you can lift it yourself," says Colin Sirett head of research for Airbus in the UK.

"We could get a sledge hammer and take it to this panel and the sledge hammer would actually bounce off," he told BBC World Service's Business Daily programme.
