Compressive Strength of a Longitudinally Stiffened FRP Panel

    Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review


    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 debonding stress.
