Abstract : Use is frequently made of parts with a rectangular shape which are subjected to the symmetric action of an evenly distributed intermittent compressive load or of a load distributed over part of the length of the unit. In many cases these parts are manufactured from orthotropic materials of artificial or natural derivation. In particular, in wooden constructions such parts, operating with local buckling, include various substrates, frameworks, wall plates, supporting parts of certain beams and girders, etc. For determination of stresses in structures of this type by theoretical means it is possible to use the method of the theory of elasticity of an anisotropic body, considering them to be orthotropic plates of a thickness equal to unity.
