Abstract:

Historical test whose test data indicates that 1. The strength properties of sheet stringer combinations are governed by the strength properties of the stringer, and only to a minor degree by the sheet to which the stringer is attached, and that the highest structural efficiency from the point of view of carrying compressive loads is attained for a given stiffener by reducing the sking thickness to a minimum. 2. For a sheet-stringer combination the total load carried is a linear function of stiffener units provided, and is independent of the stiffener pitch. 3. The effective width of sheet working with a stiffener at any stiffener stress, up to the stiffener failing stress for a given sheet thickness is determinable by the mathematical expressions provided in the report.
