"A comprehensive investigation of the effect of initial deviation from flatness on buckling stress and post-buckling strength of compression elements in structural plate members is presented. The study of stiffened and unstiffened elements expands the scope of elastic stability for initially curved plates. Finite element techniques were utilized for the study of unstiffened elements"--Abstract, page ii.
