In strength problems of stresscd‐skin constructions, the outside shape of a part to be stressed as well as the loads sustained by it are generally given. Having this data, the designer or stress analyst in most cases has to choose the type of skin and the best distance between ribs or bulkheads to obtain the lowest weight of construction.
