Evaluations are made of the potential of advanced filamentary composites for aircraft wing beams, including stiffened, multi-web, and sandwich construction. Throughout, the approach used employs the structural index concept, in which the structural efficiency is related directly to the design loading conditions. The results define areas in which advanced composites have the greatest potential for improvements in aircraft structural efficiency. Author
