    Abstract

    Fiber composite materials have been widely accepted for applications as secondary structural elements. Recently however, they are also being considered seriously for many primary load-bearing structures. The David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center has been conducting a program to evaluate the potential of fiber composites for advanced naval ship structures. As a result of feasibility studies performed by the McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company and the Grumman Aerospace Corporation, and a review of high payoff areas for structural application of advanced composites, the hydrofoil strut/foil system was selected as the primary structural element with which to assess the current technology status of advanced composites for marine application.
