Using Levy's general solution for the differential equations of plates with large deflections, the post-buckling behavior of wide plates is investigated numerically. The results obtained show that the widespread use of the one-term solution, proposed by Bleich, can lead to an over-estimation of the load-carrying capacity of wide ship plating of more than 100%. The report contains two design charts with which the effective width and excess of buckling load accompanied by yield stresses in the plate can be obtained. The experimental investigation of the post-buckling behavior of a wide plate is discussed. (Author)
