Session Track 6:- Aircraft structures
Air frame:- The airframe refers to the structural elements of a fixed-wing aircraft. The components might change depending on the kind and use of the aircraft. When engines were first made accessible for powered flight roughly a century ago, early models were often made of wood with fabric wing surfaces. Around the same time, metal mounts were introduced for the engines. After that, as speeds rose, more and more components were made of metal until, by the end of World War II, all-metal aircraft were the norm. Composite materials are being used more and more in modern times.
