Abstract

Closed form solutions are derived for the buckling loads of unidirectionally loaded rectangular orthotropic plates with (1) free and built-in unloaded edges and (2) free and rotationally restrained unloaded edges. These expressions can be used in the design of local buckling of the flanges of fiber-reinforced plastic beams. The accuracies of the formulas were determined and the usefulness of the formulas was demonstrated by numerical examples.
