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). FACTORS WHICH AFFECT THE ACCURACY OF BUCKLING ANALYSIS 6 Ways to increase the accuracy of calculations: Use empirical methods and formulas (much testing required); Use numerical methods.
COMPARISON BETWEEN CIRCULAR AND SQUARE CROSS SECTIONS 7
Empirical determination of critical stress (Southwell method). Usage of plasticity correction factors calculated by empirical formulas. Finite element analysis (FEA). WAYS TO FIND THE CRITICAL STRESS WHICH IS BEYOND THE YEILD LIMIT 8
Thus, the graph of against will form a straight line with a slope of. The deformed shape of panel is The view of coefficients is Near the buckling mode corresponding to m and n, the displacement is SOUTHWELL METHOD FOR PLATES 9
PLASTICITY CORRECTION – EMPIRICAL FORMULAS 10 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.
PLASTICITY CORRECTION – EMPIRICAL FORMULAS 11 According to Gerard, the nonlinear material behavior could be taken into account using the plasticity correction factor : - tangent and secant moduli; - elastic and inelastic Poisson’s ratios.
BUCKLING MODES OF AIRCRAFT PANEL 12
POST-BUCKLING BEHAVIOR 13 The post-buckling behavior of aircraft panels is usually studied using the concept of “attached skin” having the width of 2c :
FLOWCHART OF NONLINEAR BUCKLING FEA 14 Linear compression Linear buckling Transfer of initial imperfections Nonlinear analysis Results The critical force corresponds to the loss of convergence The model is slightly modified according to buckling mode, nonlinearities are specified Probable modes of buckling are found, dangerous one is chosen depending on the area of interest Linear physical law is used
FLOWCHART OF NONLINEAR BUCKLING FEA 15 Dimensions of the panel: a = 60 mm, h = 22 mm, 1 = 4 mm, 2 = 6 mm. Length is 300 mm. Supporting conditions: clamped at all sides. Problem is to find a critical stress for this panel.

FLOWCHART OF NONLINEAR BUCKLING FEA 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 Transfer of initial imperfections
