The main drawback of a truss structure is its lack of a streamlined shape. In this construction method, lengths of tubing, called longerons, are welded in place to form a well-braced frame. Vertical and horizontal struts are welded to the longerons and give the structure a square or rectangular shape when viewed from the end. Additional struts are needed to increase strength and handle stresses that may occur from any direction. Stringers and bulkheads, or formers, are added to shape the fuselage and support the covering.

Iron had a tremendous impact on lifestyle and food production it was one of the most important changes for mankind today iron is the backbone of the world with built. It is strong plentiful and cheap Iron comes from iron-ore such as hematite, which is similar to rust, it is a combination of iron and oxygen. The oxygen is removed by heating the ore with carbon from coke the carbon removes the oxygen leaving iron but there is still some carbon left and this affects the properties of the iron so the carbon content has to be adjust carefully in a second furnace oxygen is blown through the molten iron the oxygen burns up carbon allowing steelmakers to adjust the amount of carbon. iron and carbon are known as steel. CARBON CONTENT The carbon content affects the properties. We have Pure Iron Low Carbon Steel(mild steel) Medium Carbon Steel High Carbon Steel Cast Iron The low-carbon Steel is soft and easily Scratched the High-Carbon is much harder so High-Carbon Steel can cut Low-Carbon Steel

The construction of aircraft fuselages has evolved from early wood truss structures, to monocoque shell structures, to the current semimonocoque shell structures. The main drawback of a truss structure is its lack of a streamlined shape. In this construction method, lengths of tubing, called longerons, are welded in place to form a well-braced frame. Vertical and horizontal struts are welded to the longerons and give the structure a square or rectangular shape when viewed from the end. Additional struts are needed to increase strength and handle stresses that may occur from any direction. Stringers and bulkheads, or formers, are added to shape the fuselage and support the covering. As technology progressed, aircraft designers began to enclose the truss members to streamline the airplane and improve performance. This was originally accomplished with cloth fabric, and then evolved to lightweight metals such as aluminum. In some cases, the outside skin can support all or a major portion of the flight loads. Most modern aircraft use a form of this stressed skin structure known as monocoque or semimonocoque construction. Monocoque construction uses stressed skin to support almost all aerodynamic loads. Although very strong, monocoque construction is not highly tolerant to deformation of the surface. For example, an aluminum beverage can supports considerable forces at the ends of the can, but if the side of the can is deformed slightly while supporting a load, it collapses easily. Because most twisting and bending stresses are handled by the external skin rather than by an internal framework, the need for internal bracing was eliminated or reduced, saving weight and maximizing space. Although employed in the early years of aircraft design, monocoque construction would not reemerge for several decades due to the complexities involved in its use. Semimonocoque construction, partial or one-half, uses a substructure to which the airplane’s skin is attached. The substructure, which consists of bulkheads or formers of various sizes and stringers, reinforces the skin by supporting some of the bending stress from the fuselage. A new emerging process of construction is the integration of composites or aircraft made entirely of composites. Composite is a broad term and can mean materials such as fiberglass, carbon fiber cloth, Kevlar cloth, and mixtures of all of the above. Composite construction offers two advantages: extremely smooth skins and the ability to easily form complex curved or streamlined structures. Many manufacturers are now incorporating composite materials into their aircraft designs. -Lesson derived from the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge-

This week at the Paris Air Show, Airbus flew an autonomous aircraft, to which IEN readers responded, meh. So, we'll see if you're more built for speed. The next day, the company unveiled a high-speed demonstrator that they call the Racer. It’s designed to reach a cruise speed of about 250 mph, about 90 mph faster than the avg. copter, and it was based off of the X3. The X3 is believed to be the world's fastest helicopter developed by Eurocopter, which is now Airbus Helicopters. You see? It's all coming together. They say Racer is a codename, but really, it's an acronym for Rapid And Cost-Effective Rotorcraft. I just think that we're trying too hard with the names these days. The Racer includes a patented double wing concept to improve aerodynamics, stiffness and weight reduction, as well as a hybrid metallic-composite airframe. It should also be quieter, and include lateral rotors as well as a main rotor both driven by two engines. Airbus expects the Racer to reach final assembly in 2019, with the first flight scheduled for 2020. Not that the company is in any hurry, in a release, the CEO said that the Racer 'will pave the way for new time-sensitive services for 2030 and beyond.' So, if you can stave off a need for flight for life for another 13 years, you'll be in good hands. World's First Remote-Controlled Vessel Navigates Harbor A commercial vessel recently navigated the Copenhagen harbor in Denmark without incident. On its own, the fact seems relatively innocuous, but what makes this story interesting is that when the 28m Svitzer Hermod maneuvered around the harbor, the captain at the helm was on shore. It was a demonstration of the world's first remotely-operated from Rolls-Royce and partner Svitzer, a global towage operator The vessel was built in 2016 and has on board sensors that give the captain full awareness of the tug's surroundings, including radar, lidar, cameras, and audio. All of the information is relayed to a state-of-the-art Remote Operations Center on Shore, which looks like an immersive gamers wet dream. The captain controls the vessel’s position via satellite using the Rolls Royce Dynamic Positioning System. It also has a pair of Rolls-Royce diesel engines 2000 kW at 1800 rpm. The test successfully demonstrated vessel navigation, situational awareness, remote control and communications systems. Hermod has now completed 16 hours of remote control operation. It is the bridge between fully autonomous boats. I just want to jump into that captain’s chair, maybe after it’s handed over to me when someone says number one, you have the bridge. Though I might be a little further down the ladder, like number 51, you have the bridge. GE is Building World's Largest Metal 3D Printer GE Additive has only been around for a little more than seven months and yet this week the company announced that it is developing what it is calling the world's largest laser-powered, metal 3D printer. Sounds like a busy seven months. According Mohammad Ehteshami, VP and general manager of GE Additive, the printer, which they are calling Atlas, will be able to make metal parts 1-meter cube out of titanium, aluminum and other metals. Atlas will be capable of printing jet engine structural components for single aisle aircraft. Of course, it will have applications for manufacturers in automotive, power, and oil & gas, but the news came out at the Paris Air Show, so thus the emphasis on aerospace The largest 3D metal printer on the market is actually the X Line 2000R from Concept Laser. Airbus uses it to make wing brackets. If you recall, GE paid $599 million for a majority stake in Concept in late October. The Atlas is being designed and developed by engineers from Concept and GE. The company didn't offer a look at the machine, but it has plans to unveil a demonstrator around the division’s one year anniversary at the Formnext Show held in Germany. Last year at Formnext, Ehteshami, who has 30+ years with GE Aviation, said that GE plans to manufacture 10K additive machines over the next ten years for customers, and 1,000 more machines just for GE. Not a bad start. I'm David Mantey, and this is Engineering by Design.
