Bulkhead Stool

A bulkhead stool is a structural skirt applied to the bottom (and sometimes the top) of a corrugated bulkhead, forming a base for the bulkhead to sit on. It is fitted into the corrugations to form a box-like girder. It is recommended that stool spaces be coated as per ballast tanks, or open, due to liable proximity to heated fuel tanks and the danger of explosive gas buildups (as from grain dust).
