In the present day, use of composite Material has been extended to a large number of aircraft components which includes structural and non-structural components. During the flight, when the maximum lift is generated, wings of the aircraft will undergo stress at the location of the attachment of wing. The attachment is used to carry all type of wing load to this frame. So, the wing root attachments should be high strength enough to carry the load transferred from wing. Weight reduction is also important factor in aircraft. Composite materials are well known for their excellent combination of high structural stiffness and low weight. The analysis conducted using ANSYS finite element package. From the results of analysis, it is estimated that replacement of Al. alloy by composites results in saving in stress at attachment of wing along with reduction in structural weight of the aircraft wing.
