Metals and Alloys in Commercial Aircraft

Modern-day, self-propelled, heavier -than-air flight traces its roots back to 1903 when the Wright brothers (from Dayton, OH) remained in air for 12 seconds in Kittyhawk, NC. Just 30 years later, Boeing introduced the 247, a 10-passenger, all-metal twin-engine aircraft with a retractable landing gear; soon thereafter, the era of jet engines was ushered in; 60 years later, Boeing introduced the 777, the biggest twin-engine jet ever to fly and the first aircraft to be produced using computer-aided design and engineering! This dramatic advance in passenger flight is filled with, inventions, innovative designs, materials and technology advancements and accidents and lessons learned. Driven by societal needs, economy, government regulations and more, alloy and components design, process development, property assessment and life prediction have all been central to these advances. Here, I will follow this fascinating thread by focusing on materials development for aircraft fuselage and aircraft engine over time.
