Non-rectangular plates may have infinite number of geometric configurations. Idealized pattern of practical shapes is chosen to be a sample for these plates. The present paper is concerned with obtaining the elastic critical buckling loads of these plates under in-plane loading. As such, a finite element model is developed to predict the buckling loads of such plates. The present investigation illustrates the effect of different loadings, and boundary conditions on the buckling behaviour of non-rectangular plates.
