The preliminary structural design of ailerons in regional jet liners is essential because ailerons are critical control surfaces that enable the pilot to roll the airplane across its longitudinal direction. Ailerons are located on the trailing edge of the wing and are designed to create a differential lift between the wing's upper and lower surfaces, which generates a rolling moment that allows the aircraft to turn.

The preliminary structural design of ailerons involves determining the appropriate size, shape, and material for the aileron structure, ensuring that it is strong enough to withstand the loads that it will experience during flight. The design must also consider factors such as weight, aerodynamics, and maneuverability.

Ailerons are subjected to significant aerodynamic forces and loads during flight, so their structural design must be robust enough to withstand these loads without failing. If ailerons are not properly designed, they can fail, which can result in a loss of control of the aircraft, leading to a potentially catastrophic situation. Therefore, the preliminary structural design of ailerons is critical to ensure that the aircraft is safe to fly, and the pilot can control it effectively during all phases of flight
