**FACTORS WHICH AFFECT THE ACCURACY OF BUCKLING ANALYSIS**

Initial imperfections (the effect is especially large for cylindrical and spherical shells); Curved geometry (very actual for aircraft panels); Uncertain supporting conditions; Inelastic behavior of material (the effect is crucial for lightweight and high-loaded aircraft structures). Ways to increase the accuracy of calculations: Use empirical methods and formulas (much testing required); Use numerical methods. 6

**WAYS TO FIND THE CRITICAL STRESS WHICH IS BEYOND THE YEILD LIMIT**

Empirical determination of critical stress (Southwell method). Usage of plasticity correction factors calculated by empirical formulas. Finite element analysis (FEA). 8

**SOUTHWELL METHOD FOR PLATES**

The deformed shape of panel is The view of coefficients is Near the buckling mode corresponding to m and n, the displacement is Thus, the graph of against will form a straight line with a slope of 9

**PLASTICITY CORRECTION – EMPIRICAL FORMULAS**

Kan and Sverdlov proposed the following formula to take into account the plastic behavior of material: , where ; - elastic critical stress (calculated using linear physical law); - material ultimate stress. 10

11
**PLASTICITY CORRECTION – EMPIRICAL FORMULAS**

According to Gerard, the nonlinear material behavior could be taken into account using the plasticity correction factor h: - tangent and secant moduli; - elastic and inelastic Poisson’s ratios. 11

**POST-BUCKLING BEHAVIOR**

The post-buckling behavior of aircraft panels is usually studied using the concept of “attached skin” having the width of 2c: 13

**Transfer of initial imperfections**

FLOWCHART OF NONLINEAR BUCKLING FEA Transfer of initial imperfections 1) Rename *.rst file to "buckling.rst“, move it from buckling to structural analysis directory. 2) Insert a command object in the environment: /prep7 upgeom,0.1,1,1,buckling,rst /solu 3) Set nonlinearities: large deflection -> on nonlinear effects -> yes 20
