A structural analysis of a cross stiffened orthotropic FRP panel
subjected to uni-axial compressive load is crarried out.
Analytical Calculations of the strength of the panel are presented
and compared to finite element analysis performed by different
authors. Both analytica and finite element approaches confirm an
identical failrue scenario. In the present case, the load carrying
capacity of the stiffened panel is limited by the plate stiffener
