This report covers one phase of a continuing investigation of the stresses and deflections in swept wings of high solidity. The experimental work consisted of testing a solid plate having the shape of a parallelogram, under bending and torsion, to determine the stress and deflection patterns for angles of sweep up to sixty degrees. The torsion vector at the tip was applied perpendicular to the root.
