Chapter 6 Buckling of Plate Elements1. Differential Equation of Plate Buckling, a Linear Theory
Consider an isolated freebody of a plate element in the deformed configuration (necessary for stability problems examining equilibrium in the deformed configuration, neighboringequilibrium). The plate material is assumed to be isotropic, homogeneous and obey Hooke’s law.The plate is assumed to be prismatic (constant thickness) and forces expressed per unit width of the plate are assumed constant.1
