Plate Compression Buckling Coefficients – Derivation Spreadsheet

June 9, 2016

AA-SM-007-092Again, NACA provides a the solution to another problem. The theoretical derivation of plate compression buckling coefficients. I had a simple derivation, which uses this equation for the simply supported  plate buckling coefficient

Compression Buckling Equation simple

NACA-Report-733 has the expression that give the general curve for any edge restraint condition:

Compression Buckling Equation

The free spreadsheet is available here and has the simple expression in the first tab and the expression for the general curve in the second tab.

All thanks and credit is due to NACA. Enjoy!
