(aerospace engineering)
The main framework, of an aircraft including fittings and attachments; any structural member whose failure would seriously impair the safety of the missile is a part of the primary structure.
(biochemistry)
The sequence of amino acids in the molecule of a protein or a peptide.
(geology)
A structure, in an igneous rock, that formed at the same time as the rock, but before its final consolidation.
(organic chemistry)
