Other properties have varying, though sometimes critical, significance and stiffness, toughness, resistance to corrosion, fatigue, effects of environmental heating, ease of fabrication, availability and consistency of supply, and not least important, cost.The main groups of materials used in aircraft construction have been wood, steel, aluminum a…
