For this study, structural and manufacturing schemes for low-curvature pressurized fuselage panels were proposed, making it possible to provide high weight efficiency for the airframes of prospective civil blended wing-body (BWB) aircraft. The manufacturing scheme for low-curvature panels helped to achieve high strength characteristics of the composite details as well as decreased the labor input necessary for manufacturing and assembling. The beneficial features of the proposed structure are that the panels have a low weight, incur low manufacturing costs, and satisfy the demands of repairability. View Full-Text
