This work investigated the post buckling strength and failure behavior of advanced grid stiffened structures (AGS) under thermal-mechanical load using a finite element method. Based on the first order shear deformation theory (FSDT), Von Karman non-linear deformation assumption, and a progressive failure criterion, the buckling, large deformation,local failure modes in the AGS were studied. The thermal effect was also analyzed. By some numerical examples, the failure characteristics of the AGS were discussed.
