by G. Gerard,

Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 2, Pg. 17-34

Document Type: Journal Paper


Developments in design of thin-gage metal structures; compressive-strength analysis of long flat plates after elastic buckling occurs; plates have various boundary conditions along unloaded edges; test data apply to various forms of composite box-beam structures; also design of composite stiffened plate structures subject to instability; principles of minimum-weight design; efficient forms of limit-design structures.

Subject Headings: Minimum weight design | Composite structures | Plastic design | Structural strength | Plates | Elastic analysis | Metals (material) | Compression
