The design technical target challenges the design of integrated stiffening of wing covers and panels. The innovation comes from designing the stringer to ensure that it meets the manufacturing requirements of an IML tooling philosophy. Upper Cover demo
Tapered Stringer Feet. Soften load transition and has better anti peel performance of traditional non tapered foot designs. (unproven in LOCOMACHS). Provides simplified surface for Rib Foot interface to Cover by elimination of joggle features).
