Stiffened Steel Compression Panels - Theoretical Failure Analysis

A theoretical method is described for predicting the strength of stiffened plating loaded in uniaxial compression, and is used to analyse a range of cases. Local buckling is allowed for in the plating, by using an average compressive 'stress-strain' curve appropriate to the plate elements. However, local buckling is not allowed for in the stiffeners. The stiffened plating is analysed as a column, consideration being given both to pin-ended panels, and also to the effect of longitudinal continuity in a multi-bay structure. The study of pin-ended panels is restricted to the situation where overall failure is triggered by local failure of the plate. G.H. Little
