Unformatted text preview: the top and bottom. The plate is subjected to a linearly varying compressive load, x N , resulting from a pure bending plus axial compression as shown in the sketch. Using the energy method discussed in the class, determine the critical load. Assume the displacement function as single waves for both x- and y-directions reflecting the fixed condition in the y direction. y y x ( 29 sin y p y q a = free edge x a a a N s.s. s.s. 1 2 N fixed fixed...
