Abstract

Among the problems introduced by swept wings is that of the non‐rectangular panel in equilibrium under loading applied tangentially along its edges. The present article examines the state of stress in a general uniform quadrilateral panel and, for the benefit of stiffness calculations, the strain energy stored in it. Stable conditions are assumed. The problem of replacing such a panel by ‘diamond’ bracing is also treated.
