I'm interested in knowing what are the main factors in determining
                                       ^^^^
where the engine is located on the wings of commercial aircraft?
(eg. stress load on wings, aerodynamic performance, drag, etc..)

Is there a minimum distance which has to be maintained between the
engine and the main fuselage?
Thanks.
