Effect of variation in diameter and pitch of rivets on compressive strength of panels with Z-section stiffeners panels that fail by local buckling and have various values of width-to-thickness ratio for the webs of the stiffeners

Norris F. Dow, William A. Hickman

An experimental investigation is being conducted to determine the effect of varying the rivet diameter and pitch on the compressive strength of flat 24S-T aluminum-alloy Z-stiffened panels of the type for which design charts are available.
