Aircraft fuel tanks, systems and methods increase an aircraft's fuel capacity. The fuel tanks have a tank body defining an interior space for holding aircraft fuel, and a relief manifold assembly operatively associated to the tank body to prevent an overpressure condition within the interior space of the fuel tank body. The relief manifold assembly preferably includes a buffer vessel defining a buffer chamber in fluid communication with the interior space defined by the fuel tank body. The buffer vessel may advantageously be fixed to the tank body within...
What is claimed is: 1. An aircraft fuel tank comprising: a tank body having upper, lower and side walls which define an interior space for holding a maximum allowable volume of aircraft fuel, and a relief manifold assembly operatively mounted internally within the tank body to prevent an overpressure condition within the interior space of the fuel tank body due to an excess volume of fuel being introduced thereinto which exceeds the maximum allowable volume of fuel, wherein the relief manifold assembly includes, a buffer vessel which defines an internal...
