THE introduction of swept wings for certain high speed aircraft has brought with it a variety of fresh structural problems. The aero‐dynamic requirements of a smooth wing surface means that the designer must have information on the buckling characteristics of the top skin. If the ribs are parallel to the direction of flight a typical panel of skin will be in the form of a parallelogram, supported on two sides by stringers and on the other two sides by ribs.
