Abstract

An approximate method of evaluating the post-buckling characteristics of orthotropic plates subject to uniaxial compressive loading is presented. The analysis is based on the energy method and small deflection theory and avoids any tedious calculations which would become necessary when the large deflection theory is used. Formulae for effective widths of plates under various edge conditions are derived. Effective width curves for plates with various flexural and torsional properties are presented.
