Three previous papers by the author set forth methods of calculating the rigidity of corrugated diaphragms, the stresses in the sheet material, and the nonlinearity of the relation between load and deflection. As a further step, the introduction of a few simplifying restrictions having no fundamental effect on the problem leads to the concept of a chart giving at once the dimensions a diaphragm must have so as to conform to specific requirements. An example is included by way of illustration.
