A method is presented for the approximate calculation of the stresses and distortions in a box beam representing the main structural component of a swept wing with a carry-through section and with bulkheads perpendicular to the spars. The outer and carry-through sections of such a wing can be analyzed by existing methods if some means is provided for analyzing the triangular section which connects them.
