Abstract:

During the initial step of the Concept Formulation Phase, one-hundred nineteen 119 Element Concepts were documented. An additional twenty-seven 27 concepts were generated during the cross-section drawing phase of the program. Their weight saving potential was established as part of this effort. Evaluation and utilization of these concepts were based on qualitative and quantitative data discussed in this report. Manufacturing and NDI evaluations were basically qualitative, generally relying on comparison to known industry standards. The wing skin panel concepts were analyzed using a computer program created especially for this effort.
