Freebase

  1. Longeron

    In aircraft construction, a longeron or stringer or stiffener is a thin strip of material, to which the skin of the aircraft is fastened. In the fuselage, stringers are attached to formers and run the longitudinal direction of the aircraft. They are primarily responsible for transfering the loads acting on the skin onto the frames/ formers. In the wing or horizontal stabilizer, longerons run spanwise and attach between the ribs. The primary function here also is to transfer the bending loads acting on the wings onto the ribs and spar. Sometimes the terms "longeron" and "stringer" are used interchangeably. Historically, though, there is a subtle difference between the two terms. If the longitudinal members in a fuselage are few in number and run all along the fuselage length, then they are called "longerons". The longeron system also requires that the fuselage frames be closely spaced. If the longitudinal members are numerous and are placed just between two formers/frames, then they are called "stringers". In the stringer system the longitudinal members are smaller and the frames are spaced farther apart. Generally, longerons are of larger cross-section when compared to stringers. On large modern aircraft the stringer system is more common because it is more weight-efficient, despite being more complex to construct and analyze. Some aircraft use a combination of both stringers and longerons.
