Abstract : The NASA Aircraft Energy Efficiency (ACEE) Composite Primary Aircraft Structures Program has made significant progress in the development of technology for advanced composites in commercial aircraft. Under NASA sponsorship, commercial airframe manufacturers have demonstrated technology readiness and cost effectiveness of advanced composites for secondary and medium primary components and have initiated a concerted program to develop the data base required for efficient application of safety-of-flight wing and fuselage structure. The third special oral review of the ACEE Composites Program was held in Seattle, Washington, on August 13-16, 1984. The conference included comprehensive reviews of all composites technology development programs by ACEE Composites contractors. In addition, special sessions included review of selected NASA-sponsored research and several important Department of Defense programs in composite materials and structures. The papers were compiled in five documents. Papers prepared by personnel from Boeing Commercial Airplane Company, Douglas Aircraft Company, and Lockheed-California Company are contained in NASA CR-i 72358, CR-172359, and CR-i 72360, respectively. Papers on selected NASA-sponsored research are contained in NASA CP-2321. Papers on selected Department of Defense programs in composites are contained in NASA CP-2322.
