Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

A brief examination of some of the research on the post-buckling elastic and plastic behaviour of plates and plate structures is outlined. This field is so wide ranging that only a very superficial examination of the early research has been carried out, and the writer has concentrated on some specific aspects of the general field of study. A very limited examination of some of the early research on rectangular cross-section tubes is also given.
