This paper presents an investigation by the finite element method of highly loaded stiffened and unstiffened plates as they occur in marine structures. Additionally, the performance of the computational methods in the solution of larger systems is evaluated. Flat plates and plates with initial pre-deformation (shallow shells) are studied under various loadings, such as lateral pressure, edge shear, compression and tension as well as differing boundary conditions. © 1981.
