The objectives of this program were to develop an experimentally validated analysis capability and simple to use design procedures for curved metal and composite postbuckled panels loaded in compression or shear. The program plan was to first review the available analysis methods for postbuckled panels and then extend or modify these to develop a design methodology for curved postbuckled panels. This methodology was used in designing curved panels for a test program to generate design validation and fatigue life data.
