This course provides an introduction to the behaviour of the thin-walled stiffened plate structures that are found in the Oil and Gas Industry. The small deflection and large deflection theories (including elasto-plastic effects) are presented for a wide range of in-plane and out-of-plane load actions. A key feature is to explain how these behaviours are represented in Design Codes of Practice.
