Ultimate stresses developed by 24S-T sheet in incomplete diagonal tension

Kuhn, Paul
December 1941

Tests were made on 18 shear panels of 24S-T aluminum alloy to verify the dependence of the ultimate stress on the degree of development of the diagonal-tension field. Tests were made on two thicknesses of sheet with the sheet either clamped between the flange angle or riveted to the outside of the angles.
