Here is the construction process of construction of composite fuselage for the aviation industry’s hottest product now in the market – The Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Composite materials, unlike the metals, are combination of two or more materials (mainly fibres: provide great strength and matrix: the substance that holds these fibres ). Composite materials are characterized by the strength to weight ratio they offer compared to metals. With the energy conservation being the new obsession of world, composite materials are the answer to these problems as they reduce the weight of the object while not compromising on strength. However, they are too expensive and complex to manufacture.

Here we show how the airframe or fuselage (the structure where passengers sit in) of the 787 plane is made. Do not miss this precious piece of information:
