Non-Rigid Airship

Any airship which contains the lifting-gas in an outer envelope made of a non-rigid material.

B-12 Hybrid Rigid/ Non Rigid 160 tonne lift Airship

Bruce Blake would make the point in December 2001 Page25 Airship No 134 that non-rigid airship envelopes are monocoque, primary structures. He also makes the point such envelopes are capable of catastrophic failure (we know many examples).
