Abstract : A study was conducted to explore the structural, manufacturing, and service and environmental considerations that could impact the design of composite fuselage structure; to assess the severity of these considerations; and to delineate the principal design drivers. A summary of the major design considerations discussed in this report are listed in Table 1. Each consideration is ranked with respect to whether it is a principal design driver, a requirement that probably will not govern the design but should be checked (secondary requirement) or a consideration that requires the development of new design criteria.
