A preliminary study of the effect of compressive load on the fairness of a low-drag wing specimen with Z-section stiffeners
Description: "A low-drag airfoil specimen was loaded in compression, and surveys of the fairness of the surface were made at different stresses as well as at zero load after successively higher stresses had been applied and removed. The tests reported and the discussion of the significance of the results obtained suggest a procedure for determining the probable outcome of a particular type of construction for a low-drag wing" (p. 1).
