Determination of Coupled Modes and Frequencies of Swept Wings by Use of Power Series

Description: "A solution is presented for the coupled modes and frequencies of swept wings mounted on a fuselage. The energy method is used in conjunction with power series to obtain the characteristic equations for both symmetrical and asymmetrical vibration. A numerical example which is susceptible to exact solution is presented, and the results for the exact solution and the solution presented in this paper show excellent agreement" (p. 1).

Charts Giving Critical Compressive Stress of Continuous Flat Sheet Divided Into Parallelogram-Shaped Panels

Description: "Charts giving the compressive-buckling stress coefficients for sheet panels of a shape occurring in swept-wing plan forms are presented. The panels are assumed to be a part of a continuous flat sheet divided by nondeflecting supports into parallelogram-shaped areas. The stability analysis was performed by the energy method and the results show that, over a wide range of panel aspect ratio, such panels are decidedly more stable than equivalent rectangular panels of the same area" (p. 1).

An analysis of the stability and ultimate bending strength of multiweb beams with formed-channel webs

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of the present paper is to develop a simple method of calculating both the stress at which initial wrinkling occurs in muti-web beams and the ultimate bending strength of beams which are susceptible to this mode of instability."

Correlation of Crippling Strength of Plate Structures With Material Properties

Description: "A correlation approach to the crippling-strength analysis of plate structures in new materials and at elevated temperatures is presented. Appropriately defined crippling-strength moduli and correlation procedures are given for predicting the effect of a change in material properties on the strength of a structure. The strength moduli are readily calculated from the effective compressive stress-strain curve for the structural material" (p. 1).

Effect of Shear Lag on Bending Vibration of Box Beams

Description: "An analytical investigation is made of the effect of shear lag on the bending vibration of wings that are designed essentially as shallow box beams, and a procedure is outlined for incorporating this effect in the determination of bending modes and frequencies. Numerical examples show that shear-lag action in a box beam can have a large influence on its vibration characteristics. The calculations indicate that even though only a small shear-lag action may be observed in a simple static deflection test of the beam, reductions in the second and higher-mode frequencies may be relatively large" (p. 1).

Charts Relating the Compressive Buckling Stress of Longitudinally Supported Plates to the Effective Deflectional and Rotational Stiffness of the Supports

Description: "A stability analysis is made of a long flat rectangular plate subjected to a uniform longitudinal compressive stress and supported along its longitudinal edges and along one or more longitudinal lines by elastic line supports. The elastic supports possess deflectional and rotational stiffness. Such configuration is an idealization of the compression cover skin and internal structure of a wing and tail surfaces" (p. 1).

Determination of Coupled and Uncoupled Modes and Frequencies of Natural Vibration of Swept and Unswept Wings From Uniform Cantilever Modes

Description: Report presenting a solution for the coupled and uncoupled modes and frequencies of wings (swept or unswept) mounted on a fuselage. Characteristic equations describing symmetrical and antisymmetrical modes of vibrations are created and applied to various types of wing vibration in numerical examples.

Charts Relating the Compressive Buckling Stress of Longitudinally Supported Plates to the Effective Deflectional and Rotational Stiffness of the Supports

Description: Report presenting a stability analysis of a long flat rectangular plate subjected to uniform longitudinal compressive stress and support along its longitudinal edges and one or more other longitudinal lines by elastic line supports. This was performed in order to provide more information about stabilization methods for thin-wing construction. The effective stiffness of different supports and the buckling observed in different structures is provided.

Calculation of Uncoupled Modes and Frequencies in Bending or Torsion of Nonuniform Beams

Description: Report presenting a procedure for calculating the frequencies and modes of nonuniform beams in uncoupled bending and torsional vibration. The method is quick, easy, and can be learned by anyone familiar with engineering beam theory. Nine examples are provided in order to demonstrate the effectiveness on the calculation method on a variety of beams.

Design Data for Multipost-Stiffened Wings in Bending

Description: From Summary: "The results of a computational program are presented which give numerical values of the stiffnesses required of the various components of a multipost-stiffened wing to achieve desired buckling-stress values under bending loads. Two arrangements of the posts are considered, upright posts and posts used as diagonals of a Warren truss. This work extends and summarizes the calculations presented in NACA RM L52K10a."

Some Information on the Strength of Thick-Skin Wings With Multiweb and Multipost Stabilization

Description: Report presenting the results of strength tests on thick-skin wing structures. Some of the factors that were found to have influence on the buckling behavior and strength are shown with data and the conditions under which a combination of multiweb and multipost construction may be used are discussed. Results regarding circular-arc airfoils, multiweb beams, and multipost stiffened beams are provided.
