Aircraft Metals used for Aerospace Manufacturing: Beginners Guide

Metals have been used in aircraft construction ever since the Wright Brothers made their first historic flight. They're a vital component in the manufacturing of all types of aircraft because of their ability to withstand the stresses of air flight.  

So, what is metal? Most metals are elements. They're dense materials with a shiny, lustrous appearance, that conduct heat and electricity and have a high melting point. Examples of metals used in aircraft construction include aluminum, copper, iron, nickel, titanium, and zinc.

The Properties of Aircraft Metals

Aircraft manufacturers select metals according to their properties. These properties include:

  • Strength - a metal’s ability to resist deformation;

  • Density - the weight of the material;

  • Malleability - a metal's ability to be shaped into the desired form;

  • Ductility - ability to be bent or twisted without breaking;

  • Elasticity - a metal's ability to return to its original and form after a force is applied;

  • Toughness - a metal's ability to withstand tearing or shearing;

  • Brittleness - a brittle metal is unable to bend or deform with creating breaks or cracks;

  • Fusibility - a metal's ability to become liquid with the application of heat;

  • Conductivity - the metal's ability to carry heat or electricity; and

  • Thermal Expansion - describes a metal's ability to contract and expand in response to changes in temperatures.

Metal Alloys

Many aircraft metals are actually alloys. An alloy is created by mixing and combining one or more metals together. Alloys improve a metal's ability to be machined, resist stress, extreme temperatures, and resist corrosion. 

Steel is one of the most common alloys used in aircraft construction. Steel is made combining iron with carbon, hence the name carbon steel. Other steel alloys are created by combining iron, carbon, and metals such as boron, tungsten, manganese, chromium, nickel, cobalt, and molybdenum.
