Buckling of Partial Cylinder Plate Calculations 

Mechanics of Materials Menu
Pressure Vessel Design and Calculators

This calculator will determine the buckling stress of simply supported partial cylinder (curved) plate. Radius is assumed to be uniform.

Reference: Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain, Seventh Edition.

buckling stress

r =
    Arc Length of Plate    
b =
  Thickness of Plate    
t =
    Modulus of Elasticity    
E =
    Poissons ratio    
n =
    If a > b, then the solution does not depend on a    
    Buckling stress      
σ1 =
    Compare with flat plate solution    
σflat =
    Note: if b/r is less tha 0.5 and b and a are nearly equal  
σ'2 =
