This program had two basic goals. First was the investigation of the effects of fuel pressure flatwise tension loads and chordwise transverse tension loads on several integral composite skinspar concepts. The second goal was the development of suitable tooling which could be used to produce these types of structural components. Several concepts were designed, produced, and tested under the required loading conditions. Results indicated that a integral composite skinspar concepts could be manufactured using hard auto-clave tooling or elastomeric tooling and b concepts could be designed to carry the required loads, provided some type of coupling device is used to help distribute the loads from the spar to the skin.
