Description

The French Aerospace company AEROSPATIALE manufactures high pressure tanks for helium gas storage. Because these tanks are critical elements for rockets and satellites, a new approach has been developed to have a better knowledge of the structure reliability. Although numerical tools such as finite elements codes are used for the design of such structures and. quality rules are imposed to insure that the tanks manufactured are in accordance to the definition, it is conceivable that even a successful proof test could actually damage the composite and lead to a residual SF less than 2.
