Abstract:

By structural efficiency evaluations the potential of advanced filamentary composites for improvements in aircraft wing construction is assessed. Various optimized structural approaches are considered, but it is shown that really only through the utilization of such enhanced stiffnessdensity and strengthdensity properties as the composites make accessible can substantial weight savings be achieved.
