Efthymiou, E. Maljaars, J. Publication year 2016 Abstract This paper considers local buckling of perforated square aluminium plates. Plates of various slenderness with simply supported edges and subjected to uniaxial compression are studied using the finite element method. Different perforation patterns are investigated, from a single circular hole to 25 circular holes distributed over the plate. A number of aluminium alloys are considered and compared to steel grade A36. Results show that the resistance of the plates containing a single central cut-out is higher than that of plates with more holes and of equal total cut-out size. A further refinement beyond 5 holes does not influence the resistance Subject 2015 Fluid & Solid MechanicsSR - Structural ReliabilityTS - Technical SciencesBuildings and InfrastructuresMaterials2015 UrbanisationLocal bucklingPierced platesAluminium perforated platesSteel plates with holesParametric investigationCompression loading To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:25a35622-85d9-43e7-89fb-edfde6fca7f2 TNO identifier 529999 Source Thin-Walled structures, 99, 132-141 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
