An analysis is presented for a semi-infinite strip reinforced by flanges and subjected to concentrated in-plane loads at the ends of the flanges. The taper which results in constant flange stress is determined, and the stress distribution in the sheet is also found. A simple complex variable analysis is used which leads to exact solutions in closed form.
