In order to prevent or minimize the opportunity for the vent lines to become filled with fuel, float actuated vent valves are often installed that close the vent lines when fuel is present. 15 which shows a dihedral wing and how the vent line is shut off when there is fuel present via a float-actuated vent valve. This figure shows the vent box and its connection to the outside air-stream. Also shown is the flame arrestor which prevents flame propagation into the vent system that could result from a direct lightning strike to the air inlet igniting fuel vapors escaping from the vent system.

The single compartment approach on the other hand allows all of the fuel within the tank to move aft during a climb creating a large aft shift in aircraft CG. It is fairly intuitive that the single compartment solution is unacceptable and that a multiple compartment solution is necessary to ensure acceptable levels of CG shift during pitch angle changes. With the multiple compartment approach, the fuel boost pumps supplying fuel to the engines can be safely located in the inboard compartment of each wing.

Uncontained rotor burst associated with APU and engines: This issue has been addressed in some detail primarily from considerations of tank boundaries as well as location and routing or key fuel lines and electrical harnesses. 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.
