PLASTIC BUCKLING CAPACITY OF SQUARE SHEAR PLATES WITH CIRCULAR PERFORATIONS. IN: STRUCTURAL STABILITY RESEARCH COUNCIL. 1990 ANNUAL TECHNICAL SESSION, STABILITY OF BRIDGES, ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, APRIL 10-11, 1990

This paper presents the results of a finite element buckling analysis of perforated shear plates with inelastic material behavior. The problem typically applies to the design of working platforms and support caissons of offshore steel structures that are often designed with plate boxes or plate girders. The important shear walls or shear webs must often be perforated to allow utilities, etc., to pass through. The failure mode of these large perforated shear panels is typically plastic shear buckling. In the calculations nonlinearities in material properties and geometry were taken into account. Single unreinforced round holes were considered with variations of hole size and hole location.
