Abstract

This paper is concerned with post-buckling behaviour and the ultimate load capacity of perforated plates with different boundary conditions and subjected to uniaxial or biaxial compression. Plates were analyzed using the finite element method (FEM), and extensive studies were carried out covering parameters such as plate slenderness, opening size, boundary conditions and the nature of loading. A design formula to determine the ultimate load carrying capacity was established based on a best-fit regression analysis using the results from the finite element analyses. The accuracy of the proposed formula was established by comparison with experimental values of ultimate capacity and similar finite element values. Ultimate load values are also presented in the form of charts for various values of plate slenderness and opening size.
