Post-buckling of a stiffened shear panel as analyzed by the STAGS computer program

STAGS has a long history. Shown here is a model and results from a STAGS analysis conducted in 1973 for the prediction of buckling and post-buckling of a complex metallic shear panel:

(a) Complex stiffened shear panel,

(b) Post-buckling behavior of the panel skin predicted with the version of the STAGS computer program that existed in 1973.
