This publication presents an in-depth remedy of the examine of the soundness of engineering buildings. Contributions from the world over famous leaders within the box make sure a large insurance of engineering disciplines during which structural balance is of value, specifically the analytical and numerical modelling of structural balance utilized to aeronautical, civil, marine and offshore constructions. the consequences from a couple of entire experimental try out courses also are awarded, hence improving our knowing of balance phenomena in addition to validating the analytical and computational resolution schemes provided. quite a few structural fabrics are investigated with unique emphasis on carbon-fibre composites, that are being more and more used in weight-critical buildings. Instabilities on the meso- and micro-scales also are mentioned. This booklet can be really correct to specialist engineers, graduate scholars and researchers attracted to structural balance.

Good correlation was found though the experimental strains were lower than the predicted ones. 3. Good correlation with the predicted buckling behavior of the panels was achieved. However the predicted local buckling loads underestimated the test results, while the predicted collapse loads were in good correlation with the test results. Although the exact value of the first buckling load of a curved stiffened stringer panel has only a limited importance, it is worthwhile to investigate the possible reasons for the consistent higher loads obtained in the tests as compared with the finite element predictions.

The first buckling load of a reinforced curved laminated composite panel should be calculated using various methods (bending strain vs. compressive strain, end shortening or lateral deflection vs. axial compression load). Detailed finite elements calculations have assisted in identifying critical regions of the boxes. The boxes were reinforced accordingly to avoid their premature failure. The tests indicated that: the torsion carrying capacity is laminate lay-up dependent ; axial compression results were in very good agreement with previous tests performed with single identical panels; and the boxes have a very high postbuckling load carrying capacity.
