Survey of Methods of Analysis of the Strength of Stiffened and Unstiffened Plates Subjected to Combined In-Plane and Lateral Loads
Search this Article
One of the main strength members of a ship structure is the bottom plates which are usually reinforced by stiffeners. These plates are subjected usually to lateral water pressure and in-plane loads due to bending of the structure. Therefore, it is very important to clarify the behavior and strength of stiffened and unstiffened plates under those loadings. In this paper, a survey was performed on methods of analysis of strength of stiffened and unstiffened plates subjected to combined in-plane and lateral loads.
