I've seen many videos for fuselage construction of huge commercial airplanes . they build the fuselage into many small stiffened panels that are assembled together to form mail complete cylindrical sections . later 3-4 cylindrical sections are assembled together. so here is my question, how could they fix those section together though a very small area of the skin only i can't imagine that this will hold the huge bending stress on it. could anybody explain how this assembly is done
