deformation

I'll weigh in with protege and Bob.It's and aeroelasticity issue which can be solved with stiffening.The upper panel cannot resist the pressure differential between the base pressure of the wake below the panel and that of the speeding air above.-------- My first foray into aeroshells met not just with bending,but "explosion",as my "light" construction was quite literally blown away by such Delta-Ps.
