Title: INFLATABLE COMPOSITE STRUCTURAL COMPONENT AND METHOD
Abstract:
An inflatable structural component having a longitudinal first braided material layer and a longitudinal second braided material layer each forming a panel having a width-wise dimension transverse to a length-wise direction of the component bounded by first and second longitudinal edges along the length-wise direction of the component, the first and second braided material layers enveloping at least a portion of an inflatable longitudinal bladder, the first and second braided material layers arranged such that the first longitudinal edges of the first and second braided material layers are approximately aligned and connected together along a first side of the bladder and the second longitudinal edges of the first and second braided material layers are approximately aligned and connected together along a second side of the bladder.
