Plates stiffened with ribs can be modeled as homogeneous isotropic or orthotropic plates, and modeling such an equivalent plate numerically with, say, the finite element method is, of course, far more economical in terms of computer resources than modelling the complete, stiffened plate. This is important when a number of stiffened plates are combined in a complicated structure composed of many plates. However, whereas the equivalent plate theory is well established there is no similar established theory for stiffened shells. This paper investigates the mechanical and structural acoustic properties of curved shells with stiffening ribs. Finite element simulations and experimental data will be compared and discussed.
