Abstract : The subject of this report is the mechanical behavior of stiffened plates, basic structural components of ships and submarines. The buckling loads of grillages subjected to axial compression with and without lateral pressure are calculated using a finite element based eigenvalue analysis. Insights are obtained into the ways in which the buckling loads and modes vary with various grillage dimensions.
