The design and analysis of the final component control surface was completed. The control sur face will be located at the wing trailing edge. This component of TZM molybdenum is composed of a combination truss-crimped web substructure covered with corrugated panels on the mold line surfaces. Attachment of the panels to the sub structure is made at the corners by threaded at tachments in oversize holes to allow for thermal expansion. The panels carry only air loads while the substructure provides capabilities for carry ing shear, bending and torque loads. The hinge line is located along the forward rib so that a 20 degree movement contained either up or down, similar to conditions expected on a re entry vehicle.
