Abstract: Thermally-induced stresses in the foil, adhesive, and graphite-epoxy layers of composite tubes with aluminum foil bonded to the inner and outer surface are computed. The thermal effects are due to a temperature decrease from the processing temperature of the material to a temperature felt to represent the space environment, the intended operating environment of the tubes. Tubes fabricated from T300/934 and P75s/934 material systems are considered. The results indicate that the presence of the foil and adhesive have no detrimental effect on the stresses in the tube.
