The Flexural Bifurcation Condition for a Thin Plate under Thrust.
LEHIGH UNIV BETHLEHEM PA CENTER FOR THE APPLICATION OF MATHEMATICS
Pagination or Media Count:
Previous results on the bifurcation condition for a thick elastic plate are specialized to the case where the aspect ratio thicknesslength tends to zero. It is found that the bifurcation condition is independent of material constants up to terms of fourth order in the aspect ratio and depends on only one material constant up to terms of eighth order.
