Correspondence on Stiffened Steel Compression Panels - Theoretical Failure Analysis by G.H. Little

The paper is based on the 'stress-strain relationships' of the plate derived by Moxham. The theory developed by him is applicable to simply supported steel plates, with the unloaded edges free of pull in. In a stiffened plate, however, the unloaded edges are not free to pull in; the resulting strength predictions are, therefore, likely to be pessimistic. M.R. Horne and R. Narayanan
