Compressive-strength comparisons of panels having aluminum-alloy sheet and stiffeners with panels having magnesium-alloy sheet and aluminum alloy stiffeners
Description: Report presenting comparisons of 24S-T aluminum-alloy flat compression panels with longitudinal Z-section stiffeners and panels with flat FS-1E magnesium-alloy sheet and longitudinal 24S-T aluminum-alloy Z-section stiffeners. The use of the composite magnesium-alloy, aluminum-alloy construction permits wider stiffener spacing with little to not loss in structural efficiency or stress for local buckling. Results regarding stiffener spacing, proportions, and consideration of the different material constructions are provided.
