Rigidity and flexibility of airplane structures (airplane branch report)

Metadata FieldValueLanguage
dc.descriptionIf a structure shows a relatively small deformation when subjected to an assigned force or couple, we may class the structure relatively rigid. On the other hand, if the structure shows an abnormal deformation, we may class it as relatively flexible. There appears to be a feeling among engineers that rigidity predictions are difficult and inaccurate. A little study of the problem will show, however, that these predictions are practically as easily carried out as are the strength predictions; and the rigidity predictions are more accurate than are those of the strength.en_US
