The flexibility matrices for the unassembled structural elements are discussed and a more concise form developed appropriate to the fuselage structure. A general method is given for obtaining self‐equilibrating flange load and shear flow systems in a single‐cell fuselage, the primary redundancies being defined by a simple transformation matrix. The particular matrix based on the orthogonal stress systems for a circular section is especially convenient. A slight extension of the equations leads also to alternative statically equivalent stress systems in the cover.
