Highlights•Nonlinear stability behavior of shear panels with various boundary conditions is investigated.•In-plane shear in rectangular plates develops a compression strip.•The buckling strength of composite shear panels depends on the flexural rigidity along the compression strip.•The lateral and torsional buckling of eccentrically loaded cantilever shear panels are examined.•The stability characteristics of shear panels under combined in-plane shear and compressive load are investigated.
