Direct-reading design charts are presented for 24S-T aluminum-alloy flat compression panels having longitudinal straight-web Y-section stiffeners. These charts make possible the direct determination of the stress and all the panel proportions required to carry a given intensity of loading with a given skin thickness and effective length of panel.
