Pagination or Media Count:
The overall objective of the study is to investigate the applicability of the applied load ratio method to full scale aircraft structural components. Volume IV is a report on the correlation of theoretical and experimental results. The conclusion is that the applied load ratio method gives accurate predictions for structures loaded in elevated temperature environments to fail in bending and shear. Failure predictions apply either to a mechanically fastened splice joint or to areas where plane-strain cross- sections exist.
