Aerospace Bending and Torsional stiffness of Hat/Omega stringer

  1. Jan 3, 2013 #1
    Hallo Engineers,
    I am a little bit confused here and i need some guidance.
    Can any of you educate me on how to calculate the Bending and Torsional stiffness of a Hat/Omega stringer attached on a plate to form a fuselage panel?..You can also recommend to me a book where it is clearly described so that i can get in-depth with the topic.
    The material is Aluminium by the way.
    Thank you guys in advance, i will really appreciate the help.

    Well, what do you know about strength of materials? These calculations are covered in any basic strength of materials text.
