Abstract
THE U.S. NAVY HAS A NEED FOR LOW COST EXPENDABLE FUEL TANKS FOR USE BY CARRIER AIRCRAFT THAT OCCUPY THE MINIMUM STORAGE SPACE. ABARIS PROPOSES TO CONDUCT AN EXPLORATORY DEVELOPMENT OF THE FABRICATION OF TANKS OF ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS. TWO CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED. ONE USES LONGITUDINAL JOINTS OR SPLICES AND WOULD USE EITHER A BLADDER TANK OR A "WET-SKIN" STRUCTURE. THE OTHER USES CIRCUMFERENTIAL JOINTS AND EASILY STORED NESTABLE "BUCKET" SECTIONS. CANDIDATE ALTERNATIVE MATERIAL SYSTEMS WILL BE ANALYZED. A CONCEPTUAL/ PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF A LOW COST LIGHTWEIGHT EXPENDABLE EASILY ASSEMBLED FUEL TANK FOR CARRIER AIRCRAFT WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED. A DETAILED WEIGHT ANALYSIS OF THE TANK WILL BE CONDUCTED. A MANUFACTURING COST ANALYSIS OF THE PROJECTED QUANTITY REQUIRED FOR SERVICE USE WILL BE CONDUCTED.
