Fluids such as air, liquid or gaseous fuels are stored within a passage of a helically wound flexible hose sandwiched within a peripheral portion of a tubular enclosure of a transport vehicle between an outer shell and an inner support layer of such tubular enclosure, within which equipment and personnel are transported through an environment such as seawater, atmospheric aerospace or outer space. The foregoing structural arrangement provides for highly efficient performance of fluid storing tankage and vehicle envelope support functions.
1. In combination with a structure having an outer shell enclosing a tubular chamber in protective relation to an external environment; means for storing fluid within said chamber during travel of the structure through said external environment, comprising: inner support means peripherally positioned within the tubular chamber in spaced relation to the outer shell for establishing a peripheral storage space; flexible means peripherally sandwiched in helical wound condition within said storage space between the inner support means and the outer shell for ...
