The purpose of this investigation was to design, construct, and test a device which was to be capable of applying a compressive force and a shearing force to a plane panel of plate. This device was then to be used to determine the combined effect of shear and compression on a panel of plate of a length-to-width ratio corresponding to the representative ratio of plating dimensions most often found in ship construction.
