The structural analysis of the basic wing components of the U. S. Army XV-5A Lift Fan Research Aircraft is presented. The basic structural components of the wing are composed of the two spars, the wing leading edge torque box, and the skins and ribs of the panel outboard of the lift fan. A complete digital computer program applicable to this and other highly redundant structures was developed. Since this program was used in the structural analysis and design, the deflections, internal loads, and internal stresses for critical flight conditions are summarized in the form of printed computer output.
