  Fuselage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fuselage (from the French fuselé "spindle-shaped") is an aircraft's main body section that holds crew and passengers or cargo.
A typical early form of this was built using moulded plywood, where the layers of plywood are formed over a "plug" or within a mold, A later form of this structure uses fiberglass cloth impregnated with polyester or epoxy resin.
The use of molded composites for fuselage structures is being extended to large passenger aircraft such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

 SPACE SHUTTLE COORDINATE SYSTEM
The wing is attached to the midfuselage and aft fuselage primarily by shear ties, except in the area of the wing carry-through, where the upper panels are attached with tension bolts.
The forward fuselage is isolated from the payload bay by a flexible membrane between the forward fuselage and crew compartment at Xo 582.
The fin is attached by two tension tie bolts at the root of the front spar of the vertical tail to the forward bulkhead of the aft fuselage and by eight shear bolts at the root of the vertical tail rear spar to the upper structural surface of the aft fuselage.

 fuselage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
The fuselage, or body of the airplane, is a long hollow tube which holds all the pieces of an airplane together.
For a fighter plane, the cockpit is normally on top of the fuselage, weapons are carried on the wings, and the engines and fuel are placed at the rear of the fuselage.
The fuselage, along with the passengers and cargo, contribute a significant portion of the weight of an aircraft.

 Design Analysis of the P-47 Thunderbolt
The fuselage of the P-47 is of semi-monococque, all-metal, stressed-skin construction, composed of transverse bulkheads and longitudinal stringers.
The upper and lower main fuselage halves are bolted at reinforcing angles built into the parting surfaces of the structure and joggled extensions on the upper half frames are spliced by riveting to the lower half frames.
The upper fuselage half extension of the aft wing-hinge-support-bulkhead consists of.064" flanged segments, extending to the upper longeron, spliced with.064" splice plates to both faces of the bulkhead.

 Raven Fuselage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Design of the main fuselage structure was started after the basic fuselage aerodynamic form was defined and the building of a plug master-mold for the fuselage form started.
To efficiently blend the wing and fuselage together for this configuration would require that the wing root airfoil be scaled up to near this dimension.
The critical dimensions of the fuselage structure were defined and we needed to fine-tune the design to minimize the weight.

 Fuselage
A supersonic fighter plane has a very slender, streamlined fuselage to reduce the drag associated with high speed flight.
The center of gravity of the aircraft is the average location of the weight and it is usually located inside the fuselage.
In flight, the aircraft rotates around the center of gravity because of torques generated by the elevator, rudder, and ailerons.

 Bubbles in fuselage a hitch in FAA certification for 787
A final composite fuselage section that was to be used in certifying The Boeing Co.'s 787 Dreamliner failed during manufacturing, sending engineers scrambling to keep the company's all-important new jetliner program on schedule.
To develop, refine and prove new manufacturing processes needed for the Dreamliner, Boeing and its partners have been producing composite fuselage test barrels since late 2004 at the company's developmental center, the same facility that in the late 1960s was used for work on Boeing's supersonic transport before it was killed by Congress.
The composite fuselage barrels of the 787, however, are made in one large piece.

 Fuselage Repair   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
If the fuselage has the cables still attached and they cannot be easily removed, prepare the fuselage by slitting one of the joints for about 2 inches on either side of the break.
This method is used in cases where the fuselage has not been fully separated due to anchored cables at the front and back end.
If the fuselage is in two pieces the assembly of the joining tube and fuselage halves should be easier.

 Dictionary : Wing_types
A small wing called a canard is often attached to the fuselage near the front on this type of aircraft.
The fuselage is a very narrow section in the center that joins the wings without any seams.
Dihedral is the angle at which the wings are slanted upward from the root of the wing (where it is attached to the fuselage) to the wing tip.

 Aeronautics - Parts of an Airplane (THE FUSELAGE STRUCTURE)
The word fuselage is based on the French word fuseler, which means "to streamline." The fuselage must be strong and streamlined since it must withstand the forces that are created in flight.
Fuselages are classified according to the arrangement of their force-resisting structure.
The types of fuselages we will study are the truss and the semimonocoque.

 Fuselage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
The fuselage was brought home on a 16' flatbed trailer with the intent of taking it to the local airport and working on it there.
Small adjustments of the leg rotation were made until the cables sounded the same 'note' then the sockets and legs were drilled and bolted.
It was about this time that we decided we were having too much fun to take the fuselage to the airport.

 Richard Nakka's Experimental Rocketry Site
The lower fuselage, which housed the motor, was fabricated from aluminum tubing of 2 inch outside diameter, with relatively thick walls (0.070 inch; 1.8 mm) to facilitate mounting of the fins, motor, and launch lugs.
Before insertion of the fin assembly into the fuselage slots, a film of silicone adhesive was put on the fairing surfaces to bond them to the fuselage (silicone was used to allow for later fin removal).
The Cirrus One had a fwo part fuselage, with the lower section serving to house the motor, and the upper fuselage held the payload and parachute (the purpose for having the fuselage in two sections was for the purpose of shipping).

 Notes & Comments, Fuselage
I read about elaborate fuselage jigs that require skids of plywood and tons of bolts only to be in the way before everything is stabilized by the skin.
scribe supporting the fuselage jig with two posts-one in the nose gear bay where it will be out of the way, and the other a "split" post of two boards on each side of the bottom center longeron at the tail section.
The stand for the fuselage jig is made of standard fl steel plumbing pipe, threaded where appropriate, and ordinary hardware-store fittings.

 Aft Fuselage
A spring on either side of the forward fuselage is used to return the rudder to a neutral position.
Because I faced the bolt attaching rudder cable to pedal outward (as opposed to inward as specified in the plans), I had to slighlty shape the nearby vertical fuselage member to ensure no interference.
Before installing, the exit slots had to be slightly opened-up to make sure no "rubbing" of the cable would occur against the fuselage side skins over the full range of the rudder movement.

 BAF - Fuselage
The one layer of tape on the screw sized was to keep from scratching the parts, the foot had multiple layers to allow the the bearing to push past the side of the bracket just a little bit as they are thicker than the bracket and should "stand proud" of both surfaces.
The only real issue is cutting the hole in the side of the fuselage to allow the flap actuator push rode bearing end to retract all the way into the fuselage.
Although the lines go through the side of fuselage there is no room to flair them with the wing on so my plan is to mark the lines with the wing on so I will know where to cut them.

 Analysis of the Flight 175 "Pod"
It is a reflection of sunlight on the plane's fuselage.
The supposed cylinders on the fuselage of the plane are so obviously specular highlights that I'm inclined to think that this is either a practical joke or disinformation aimed at those who are not technically or visually astute.
Notice in the graphic that they used, that the midline of their line diagram is on the side of the fuselage and not the center, allowing it to be scaled down smaller than it should be and still match up with the clearly visible right wingtip.
