The general theory of the clastic behaviour of a conventional single‐cell wing stiffened with swept ribs (or stringers) has been dcvclopcd. It was shown that the swept members introduce a measure of skewness in the structural geometry of the wing which cause the wing to twist, as well as bend, under simple bending loads. This note shows that, if the sweepback angle is not more than 35 deg., it is possible to make a wing aero‐isoclinic by introducing swept stringers.
