This is the third of a series of reports covering an investigation of the general instability problem by the California Institute of Technology. The first five reports of this series cover investigations of the general instability problem under the loading conditions of pure bending and were prepared under the sponsorship of the Civil Aeronautics Administration. The succeeding reports of this series cover the work done on other loading conditions under the sponsorship of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. This report is concerned primarily with the continuation of the tests of wire-braced specimens, and preliminary tests of sheet-covered specimens that had been made in the experimental investigation on the problem of the general instability of stiffened metal cylinders at the C.I.T.
