Aircraft Basics

Aircraft Rivits,Alloys,Corrosion

Lap Joint A skin that is riveted together in such a way, that there is a distinct step or change in level. Lap patch
Flush Joint Used to obtain aerodynamic smoothness between two skins. Skins are riveted to the same sub structure which puts them on the same plane. Doubler,Tripler
Joggle Joint Combination of flush and lap joints. One skin is joggled to accommodate the other to produce one smooth side. Fitting doubler over other external structures
