AbstractThe postbuckling behaviour of a flat, stiffened, carbon fibre composite compression panel has been studied, theoretically and experimentally. The panel had a collapse load in excess of three times the buckling load. An initial failure mechanism leading to eventual explosive collapse of the panel is identified and the damaging stress resultant is measured in the panel and predicted from a finite element analysis.
