This paper concerns the numerical characterization of the static strength of a flat stiffened panel, designed as a fiber metal laminates (FML) and made of Aluminium alloy and Fiber Glass FRP. The panel is full scale and was tested under static loads, applied by means of an in house designed and built multi-axial fatigue machine. The static test is simulated by the Finite Element Method (FEM) in a three-dimensional approach. The strain gauge outcomes are compared with corresponding numerical results, getting a satisfactory correlation.
