As the use of CAD practices become capable of addressing multidisciplinary issues of design, the three stages of the design process will become less distinct, with the increased ability to address composite structure shortfalls early in the design process. This will result in increased use of composites throughout the airframe. C. Challenges of an "All-Composite" Air Vehicle The challenges of implementation are primarily dictated by the requirements of the weapon system. If the weapon system is only intended for limited life service, quality control, required maintenance, and definition of material failure can be modified/reduced to achieve major reductions in cost.

These attributes also provide for increased design creativity by enabling the designer to tailor material properties for specific applications. 2 This is due to design and manufacturing approaches that utilize composite materials in the conventional "metals fashion" of assembling large numbers of mechanically fastened parts. A design approach involving larger, integrated components to maximize producibility, quality, and design efficiency will enable affordable composite airframe structures. The properties of composite materials are directionally dependent and offer the ability for aeroelastic tailoring the strength and stiffness of a structure in the directions to allow the most efficient management of airframe loads.
