The problem of buckling under uniform compression of flat, simply supported, rectangular plates with equally spaced longitudinal stiffeners on one side of the plate is investigated. For the case of a plate with one, two, or infinitely many stiffeners, the analysis yields expressions for the effective moment of inertia of the stiffeners that can be used in conjunction with the buckling charts previously presented in NACA TN 1825.
