Document Type: Journal Paper


The behavior of simply supported rectangular plates subjected to edge compression in one direction is investigated by means of load-shortening tests. The data are presented by non-dimensional curves and compared with the theoretic results of Levy and Coan and the experimental data of Sechler, Winter, and Lahde and Wagner.
