The technologies have progressed to state-of-practice processes with both the 787 and the A350 programs using liquid molding and textile preform technology for fabricating fuselage frame
It has a wooden fuselage frame
braced with supporting struts and tension wires and is only partially fabric covered.
Such destructive forces have their greatest effect on attach points, where the aircraft's wings and main landing gear join its fuselage frame
The pilot examined the airplane and found a fuselage frame
tube had broken near the right main landing gear attachment.
South Africa s Centurion- based Aerosud is also involved in the A350 XWB project, which makes the fuselage frame
clips for planes.
This AD requires repetitive inspections of fuselage frame
07 in the upper frame section assemblies of the lateral cockpit windows, and corrective action, if necessary.
This proposal would require repetitive inspections of fuselage frame
07 in the upper frame section assemblies of the lateral cockpit windows, and corrective action if necessary.
The first relates to certain Airbus A300 series aircraft and all Airbus A300-600 series aircraft and would require a one-time high frequency eddy current inspection to check for cracking of the splice fitting at fuselage frame
(FR) 47 between stringers 24 and 25, and corrective action where necessary.
In addition to Arconics proprietary alloys chosen for their combination of strength, corrosion resistance, density savings and manufacturability Airbus planes will feature Arconic plate products on every platform, used in key applications such as wing ribs, fuselage frames
and other structural parts of the aircraft.
A sky-blue horizontal band across the fuselage frames

It covers basic elasticity, virtual work and energy methods, thin plate theory, structural instability, the vibration of structures, the principles of stressed skin construction from the perspectives of materials and structural components, airworthiness and airframe loads, and fatigue, including the prediction of aircraft fatigue life, as well as analysis of thin-walled beams subjected to bending, shear and torsional loads, the method of idealizing a structure into one more amenable to analysis, and stress analysis of aircraft components such as wing spars, fuselages, wings, fuselage frames
, and wing ribs.
The programme includes replacing major structural elements such as fuselage frames
, reinforcement of other components and external straps to spread loads and provide redundant load paths, as well as a new rigorous maintenance programme developed using modern damage tolerance philosophies.
