Abstract In this work, an exceedingly simple examination of the von Karman theory for the buckling analysis of thin plates is carried out. It is shown that the von Karman assumption, based on the interaction between axial and flexural deformation, is intrinsically less “robust” in capturing the target phenomenology than the usual treatment of Euler inextensible strut. Finally, the same observation is carried out in the case of a hinged cantilever, which constitutes the simplest structural… CONTINUE READING
