Abstract:

This report contains an analysis of the following outer wing panel structures for the YB-36 and B-36A bombers the critical aileron support inter-spar bulkhead and trailing edge rib typical airload inter-spar bulkhead and trailing edge rib typical airload nose rib and the wing auxiliary spar. For the inter-spar bulkheads the crushing loads due to bending are computed by the method of C.V.A.C. No. l from the bending stresses of a previous report No. FZS-36-141. These loads are combined with the loads obtained from the pressure distribution curves as final loads for the bulkheads. Included are results of the analysis which are presented in various graphs and diagrams.
