Abstract

IN the strength testing of major components of aircraft structures, considerations of time and expense do not usually permit the use of more than one specimen of any component. However, it has long been realized that, if a number of nominally identical specimens of any given component were tested, there would be some variation in failing load and probably in mode of failure, and that this variation would depend on the type of construction.
