Consideration must also be taken regarding the impact of fuel loss as it affects the availability of fuel for the remaining engines as well as the impact on aircraft weight and balance. The APU rotor burst may be less of a risk; however, in aircraft with fuel storage in the horizontal stabilizer the implications of tank penetration and fuel loss should be evaluated and an appropriate mitigation strategy developed that will support certification. The effects of a fan blade out failure: This event will result in sustained engine imbalance with the potential for high vibration levels.

Also shown in the photograph are the bonding straps across all of the pipe connectors which are critical features that are necessary to prevent arcing resulting from the large currents that can flow through piping following a lightning strike. This is discussed in more detail in Chapter 9. Ribs and stringers within the integral tank structure must allow fuel and air migration within the fuel tank boundary and inertia loads resulting from fuel slosh during aircraft acceleration must be accommodated by this structure.

In these applications trapped fuel in the aft-most tank due to equipment failure, icing or any other potential cause, must not result in a longitudinally unstable aircraft. One notable aircraft application with special longitudinal stability issues is the Concorde where supersonic flight results in large aft shifts in the aircraft center of lift requiring an equivalent movement in aircraft CG to optimize trim drag during the high Mach number cruise phase. This is accomplished by moving fuel aft during transonic acceleration and reversing the process during deceleration at the end of cruise.
