EFFECT ON INITIAL DEFLECTIONS ON SHIP PLATING PERFORMANCE UNDER COMPRESSION-THEORY AND EXPERIMENT

The stress behavior of flat wide plates having initial deformations loaded by edge compression beyond the buckling limit is studied both theoretically and experimentally. The theoretical part deals with actual ship plating of any aspect ratio under edge compression having various amounts of initial deflections, whereas the second part is concerned with the experimental investigation of a transversely framed box girder model with relatively heavy, wide bottom plating, and which is subjected to bending moments by means of bottom pressure.
