Stability Of Rectangular Plates By Arbitrary Deflection Method, James Arthur Jones Jan 1959

Stability Of Rectangular Plates By Arbitrary Deflection Method, James Arthur Jones

Masters Theses

"Many engineering structures use thin rectangular plates as members. These plates may be loaded and supported in numerous ways. The edges may be freely supported, rigidly supported, or supported by elastic members. The load may be applied normal to the plane of the plate, in which case the problem becomes essentially one of bending. If the load is applied in the plane of the plate, placing it in compression, the problem becomes one of stability.

This investigation is concerned with the stability of plates rigidly supported on all edges and having a compressive load applied to two opposite edges of ...
