Abstract:

A structural design concept of the TAP-1 foil and strut configuration was evolved and simplified stress analyses were performed in selected critical stress locations. Although conclusive determination of feasibility and establishment of ultimate criteria for optimum structural design and weight definition must await more sophisticated structural analyses, this preliminary study indicates that it will be feasible to ultimately produce a structurally adequate design capable of withstanding anticipated maximum load conditions.
