2.081J/16.230J Plates and Shells Homework #5 Due date: class on Monday March 20 Problem 1 A long rectangular simply supported plate is compressed between two rigid blocks. l xx σ b x y uniform thickness, h = 10 m m The following data for the considered steel are provided: ½ for ε<ε y σ = 0 . 3 for ε ε y where E =210 GPa ; ν =0 . 3 K =2 . 141 GPa σ y ε y = ; σ y = 300 MPa E Note that σ and ε are respectively total stress and total strain. (a) Calculate the e f ective width of the plate, b eff . (b) Assume the actual width of the plate is b = b eff / 2 . Determine the plastic buckling stress σ cr and the total buckling load P cr . (c) Compare the solution ( σ cr and P cr )for b = b eff and b = b eff / 2 . (d) Plot the stress distribution in both plates,

This shell is subjected to axial compression. 1 mm l = 2 m 0.1 m h = a = (a) Determine the buckling mode of the shell, ( ¯ m, n ) . (b) Calculate the corresponding half-wave length, λ . (c) Determine the theoretical buckling stress, σ cr 2...
