Abstract

THE increasing operational speeds of the modern aeroplane have involved the designer of the aircraft structure in problems which necessitate the experimental determination or calculation, not only of the strength, but also of the stiffnesses of the various major components of the airframe. It has become very apparent that stiffness rather than strength is the determining factor in the design of many aeroplane components.
