Abstract
The stresses near the root of an F8U-3 airplane wing loaded in torsion found using the matrix-force method of analysis . The wing was represented by a simplified, idealized model consisting of axial-load carrying flange bars and shear carrying cover plates. The theoretical stresses in the idealized model were found by using the IBM 360/67 computer to solve for the redundant loads. These stresses show favorable comparison with the experimental stresses determined from strain gages mounted on the cover skin of the wing. This study shows that the matrix method is applicable to thick-skinned wings
