As part of the MARSTRUCT Network of Excellence on Marine Structures, a series of studies has been carried out into the buckling of glass fibre reinforced polymer plates with in-plane compression loading. The studies have included fabrication and testing of square, laminated panels with various thick-nesses and initial geometrical imperfections, material testing, advanced FE modelling studies and finally pa-rametric studies covering a range of slendernesses and imperfection amplitudes. The paper provides an over-view of the studies, which involved several participants in the Network.
