Abstract

This paper concerns the elastic buckling of uniformly in-plane loaded regular polygonal plates with combinations of various edge conditions and internal line/curved supports. In contrast to the usual practice of using one of the discretization methods such as the finite element method for performing the buckling analysis, the Rayleigh-Ritz method has been adopted. It will be demonstrated how such an approximate continuum method can still be applied for such plates with somewhat complicated boundary conditions. This more comprehensive tabulated set of buckling factors for plates of various regular polygonal shapes should be valuable to designers and may also serve as reference values for testing future software development in plate buckling analysis. © 1995.
