Abstract

"There are many engineering structures in which thin plates are used extensively, some examples of which can be found in ship and airplane structures, bridges, etc. The problem contained in this thesis is the analysis of a thin rectangular plate simply supported on three edges, built in on the fourth edge, and compressed on two opposite simply supported edges by a load in the plane or the plate. This problem becomes one of stability, and the object of the solution is to find the smallest load that will cause the plate to buckle"--Introduction, page vi.
