Abstract : The memorandum describes a STRETCH computer program written in FORTRAN IV which computes the center of gravity, the gross weight, the shearing forces, and the bending moments of certain aircraft structures, viz., those which can be treated as statically determinate beams. The program also outputs, on option, graphic data in the form of shear diagrams and bending moment diagrams. (Author)
