CRASH-RESISTANT FUEL TANKS FOR HELICOPTERS AND GENERAL AVAIATION AIRCRAFT
Crashworthy fuel tanks have been developed for U.S. Army helicopters which have demonstrated excellent performance in over three years of service. Although design guidelines evolving from this work have a direct bearing on the application of crashworthy fuel cells for general aviation aircraft, additional development work is required to provide tanks with minimum cost and weight penalties.
