Experimental and Numerical Estimation of Plates Buckling Load

Authors : I. Mohammed Hameed and Iman Naemah

Abstract: The present study focuses on the calculation of plates buckling load experimentally under uniaxial pure compression load. To achieve this goal, first of all, a buckling test apparatus has been designed and manufactured. The boundary conditions of the specimens are (Clamped-Clamped-Free-Free (CCFF)). Pure compression load was applied on 1 side of plate and the other side is constrained at all degrees of freedom. Two types of rectangular plates have been tested, namely 7075 aluminum alloy and low carbon steel with usual aspect ratios (a/b = 1.5, 2 and 2.5) where (a) is the plate length and (b) is the plate width. The experimental results were compared with the results of ANSYS Software for verification purpose. The results showed that the buckling load for low carbon steel plates is larger than aluminum plates, also, the buckling load decreases as the aspect ratio increases. The results showed a good agreement between experimental and numerical results of ANSYS.
