Abstract

Aeronautic structures and their design have evolved over the years. The fuselage must be
resilient, lightweight and able to connect the whole airplane. Also, the fuselage holds cargo transports,
luggage and, most important, passengers. In the following paper we will deal briefly with the topic of
fuselage assembly and how its primary structure is being manufactured. This paper gives a short
introduction about the materials used in fuselage design and how the manufacturing techniques were
modernised. In conclusion, we will focus on exemplifying the assembly process through the creation of a
3D CAD with the CATIA V5 Student Edition software.
