Comparison of the structural efficiency of panels having straight-web and curved-web Y-section stiffeners
Description: Report presenting comparisons of the structural efficiency of panels with straight-web and curved-web Y-section stiffeners. In the high-stress region in which failure is at least in part associated with local buckling, panels with curved-web Y-section stiffeners have higher structural efficiencies than panels with straight-web Y-section stiffeners, which is evidenced by higher average stresses at failure, smaller stiffener heights, or wider average spacing of rivet lines.
