Simple flat plate buckling is enough to calculate it.
[QUOTE=Lendo;199343]Hello,I managed to get what I wanted from Euler's Beam Buckling formula. I can send you what I have in Excel format.
Does your spread sheet cover all cases "autoreply" talks about. Also I am interested to check skin buckling, as certainly the skin carries load in an aluminum riveted structure.
