Recent Advancements in Thin-Walled Hybrid Structural Technologies for Damage Tolerant Aircraft Fuselage Applications
This paper presents and discusses some of the recent advancements that have been achieved in the development of the FML concept for thin single-aisle fuselage structures. It is shown that the inherent damage tolerant nature of this concept can be further exploited for these structural applications.
