Elastic stress analyses of flat sheets stiffened by parallel stringers and loaded in the direction of stiffening were performed on the basis of idealized models. Melans analysis IngenieusArchiv. 3123-129, 1932 was reconsidered, again on the basis of a plane elasticity theory, but this time the stringer was assumed to be attached to the sheet by means of equally spaced rivets of equal diameter. Mathematical solutions were obtained for the rivet loads, a tip loaded semiinfinite stringer in the presence of another unloaded stringer, and elastic stresses on flat sheets.
