Abstract

MOST of the structural analysis problems that have resulted from the use of “thin‐walled” construction seem to fall into two general classes: Stress distribution and buckling. Even these classes cannot be entirely separated, as the stress distribution can be greatly affected by buckling phenomena. A thorough understanding of the general principles of buckling (or structural instability) is therefore essential for efficient and safe design of modern aircraft structures.
