The Buckling of a Uniformly Compressed Plate with Intermediate Supports

The Buckling of a Uniformly Compressed Plate with Intermediate Supports

Date: 1949
Creator: Dean, Thomas S.
Description: This problem has been selected from the mathematical theory of elasticity. We consider a rectangular plate of thickness h, length a, and width b. The plate is subjected to compressive forces. These forces act in the neutral plane and give the plate a tendency to buckle. However, this problem differs from other plate problems in that it is assumed that there are two intermediate supports located on the edges of the plate parallel to the compressive forces.
