i. A structural member intended to resist compression or tension in the direction of its length. It normally refers to the strut fitted on the landing gear. Bracing, or lift, struts are used to strengthen the structure, such as in some small high-wing monoplanes, and drag struts carry the loads within the wings in the direction opposite to that of flight.
ii. A stub wing or pylon strut attaching an engine pod to the fuselage or the wing.
