Abstract:

Compressive tests were made of 24S-T aluminum-alloy sheet-stiffener panels, which had five ratios of stiffener thickness to sheet thickness. For each ratio the rivets used to attach the stiffeners to the sheets had five except in one case, four different diameters. The tests showed that for the panels of this investigation, which failed by local buckling at average stresses greater than 35,000 psi, the compressive strengths increased with an increase in the diameter of the rivets for the rivet spacings used until the ratio of rivet diameter to over-all thickness sheet plus stiffener reached approximately 1.25.
