Description: From Summary: "Results of local-instability tests of H-, Z-, and C-section plate assemblies of four extruded aluminum alloys and two magnesium alloys, obtained in an extensive investigation to determine plate compressive strengths of aircraft structural materials, are summarized. On the basis of the general relationships found between the plate compressive strengths and the compressive stress-strain curves, methods applicable to flat plates and based upon the use of the compressive stress-strain curve are suggested for determining the critical compressive stress and the average stress at maximum load."
