CARBON FIBER COMPOSITE AIRPLANE FUSELAGE: CONCEPT AND ANALYSIS

The paper addresses one of the concepts of carbon fiber fuselage for a big passenger air plane, "Lampassenkonzept” proposed by the Institute of Structural Mechanics of the Ger man Aerospace Center (DRL, Braunschweig) within the research program assigned by Air bus, Germany. The proposed concept along with the weight/cost reduction issues ad dresses the possibility of meeting the addi tional requirements to carbon fiber plastic fuselages of big airplanes of tomorrow. The paper contains the analysis and comparison of above concept with the aluminum variant of "standard body”, as well as the results of car bon fiber fuselage project in "Gondelkonzept” implemented by above Institute within the national German HGF Project "Black Body”.
