1. 1. COMPARISON OF THE LINEAR BUCKLING ANALYSIS FOR DIFFERENT THICKNESS OF A FLAT PLATEName : Muhammad bin RamlanMatrix No. : P 57600Subject : Finite Element Method In Civil EngineeringYear : 2011 / 2012Lecturer : Prof Ir Dr Wan Hamidon bin Wan Badaruzzaman
2. 2. Objective1. Analyse the effect of buckling load for a different thickness types of flat plate subjected to in-plane compressive loading.2. Discuss the result of the analysis prior to the experiment. COMPARISON OF THE LINEAR BUCKLING ANALYSIS FOR DIFFERENT THICKNESS OF A FLAT PLATE

4. 4. Description of LUSAS• LUSAS is a finite element analysis software program which can solve all types of linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics, composite and thermal engineering analysis problems. The main components of the LUSAS are: – LUSAS Modeller - a fully interactive graphical user interface for model building and viewing of results from an analysis. – LUSAS Solver - a powerful finite element analysis engine that carries out the analysis of the problem defined in LUSAS Modeller.

5. 5. Finite Element Modelling• The finite element modelling using LUSAS was run as per below: – Creating a new model – Inserting the feature geometry – Select the meshing – Specifying the geometric properties – Specifying the material properties – Specifying the support applied – Select the loading applied to the element – Eigenvalue analyst control – Saving the model – Running the Analysis – Printing the buckling load factor – Calculating the critical buckling load COMPARISON OF THE LINEAR BUCKLING ANALYSIS FOR DIFFERENT THICKNESS OF A FLAT PLATE

13. 13. Conclusion1. It can be concluded that different types of material properties will cause different types of buckling effects.2. From the analysis, a thicker flat plate will provide a larger buckling value. Whilst for a thin flat plate, the buckling value will be smaller.
