    This report is based on the study undertaken by the author during his seven week visit to DFVLR, Braunschweig in the months November-December 1986. Status of project was reviewed. Design studies of NAL and DFVLR were compared and final design of rudder was arrived at. The mechanical connections of composite rudder with the rest of the structure were discussed. The joint design proposed by DFVLR was found to be satisfactory. Material testing for airworthiness requirements was extensively discussed and a test plan as per DIN standards was finalised. A Program of work on repair technology which forms an essential part of any component development for aeronautical structures was evolved.
