Abstract:

The analogy between the distribution of stresses in flat stiffened panels and the distribution of electric current in a ladder-type resistance network is used as the theoretical basis of an electrical computer for the rapid solution of shear-lag problems. The computer, consisting of variable resistors and multiple-current sources, is described and typical examples are given of its use. The analogy is extended to included bolted-joint problems, and an example is given also.
