The term Semimonocoque is "a stressed shell structure for airplane fuselages that differs from the monocoque in being reinforced with longitudinal stringers"[1][2]

Some aircraft use a combination of construction methods. The Mooney range of four seat aircraft, for instance, use a steel tube truss frame around the passenger compartment with monocoque behind.
