Experimental Investigation into the Buckling Behavior of an Advanced Grid Stiffened Plate by a Fringe Projection Profilometry System
This article demonstrates the buckling behavior of an advanced grid stiffened (AGS) composite plate under an axial loading. The experimental results acquired by a fringe projection profilometry system shows that the buckling of the AGS plate would gradually evolved from a local skin buckling to a global ribs buckling during the experiment. Kinds of failure mode would arise while the loading increasing, though an impressive peak loading was recorded before the AGS plate was crush. The whole-field deformation of the AGS plate during the experiment was retrieved by the fringe projection profilometry system.
