Howland, W. Lavern (1936) Effect of rivet spacing on stiffened thin sheet under compression. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-07182007-093403
This thesis discusses an experimental investigation of the stress distribution across a stiffened thin sheet panel under compression. The effect of bending stresses and curvature of the sheet on extensometer readings is also dealt with. An attempt is made to determine a rational design criteria for rivet spacing on stiffened thin sheet under compression. Design curves of rivet spacing against thickness are developed. The effect of changing the rivet spacing or size on the ultimate load of a compression panel is discussed in view of some experiments.
