Abstract : The failure modes of a stiffened skin structure, built-up from beams, stringers, frames, and panels, under a single continuously increasing deformation event are: Material (Separation) Failures, Rupture and tearing (no flaws), Fracture (with flaws), and Connection (fastener) failures; Geometric (Deformation) Failures, Plastic collapse, and Elastic buckling.
