Abstract

THE shear stress in thin‐walled tubes is often a design criterion and considerable weight economy can be effected by an exact stress determination. The problem has been investigated by D. Williams, and the principle is here elaborated and extended to form a practical and very general method which enables many types of structure to be dealt with, such as slats, ailerons, monocoque and semi‐monocoque wings, fuselages and tail‐units in which the following diversities are encompassed:—
