Looks like bridle wraps waiting to happen...
That is true. But in this case there is not that much volume (conserved energy) so there isn't much danger. However there has been many deaths with exploding tires of heavy equipment. I was once at the same crossroad when a wheel of a truck exploded, my car got sand blasted and sound was really big.spritrig wrote:Be careful with pressurized gasses.
Too bad it is LE which needs most rigidity. Small struts can be a bit lighter in weight if they are smaller in diameter. But then they should have higher pressure than LE has. I'm not convinced TE strut because it sacrifices one LEI benefit, thin TE.spritrig wrote: Increasing the diameter of struts would have a much lower drag penalty than increasing diameter of leading and trailing edge pipes.
