Abstract:

A procedure for the shear-lag analysis of box beams, such as wing structures, is outlined. A previously published method separated the most essential part of the shear-lag analysis from the McI analysis. The present method, by slightly modifying the computation of the chordwise distribution of stress, entirely separates the shear-lag analysis from the McI analysis. The discussion points out that savings in time and greater accuracy will result from this separation.
