Publication date: 1 June 1939


THE usual formulæ for deflexions and bending moments in curved beams, as given in standard textbooks (e.g., Refs. 1 and 2), are not easily applied to the relatively flimsy closed rings used as stiffeners in contempory aircraft design. Two kinds of difficulty arise; one of computation, the other of principle.
