Are there any recent news regarding structural test-simulations using parts of the 787 body ?
Since currently there are no fully fledged bodies of the 787 assembled,I assume Boeing must have done simulations using the available elements and feed those structural parameters into a simulator-program.
Is the current thickness of the manufactured elements allowing structural and mechanical freeze of the design ?
How do the current elements behave in terms of stiffness and noise-insolation?

The latest we have heard (which was this week) is that everything is on track for EIS. The first fueselage will begin the assembly process in June, with a scheduled rollout in 2007.

Messier-Dowty has already begun manufacturing the first 787 landing gear. Landing gear forgings are one of the longest-lead items for commercial aircraft, so it's no suprise they had to start so early.

Boeing must have had a positive experience with noise-insulation as they claimed they would need less insulation due to the better than expected performance for composites with regards to heat and noise transfer, which also allowed Boeing to increase cabin width further.
