A study is made of the effect of variation in rivet strength on the average panel stress at maximum load for 75S-T6 aluminum-alloy, flat, Z-stiffened compression panels that fail by local buckling. A curve is presented for the determination of the relationship between strength, diameter, and pitch of the rivets, and the strEngth of stiffened, flat compression panels of such proportions that failure is by local buckling.
