A structural analysis of a cross stiffened orthotropic GRP panel subjected to uniaxial compressive loads is carried out. Analytical solutions to the buckling of such structures are proposed and validated by a finite element analysis. Both analytical and finite element approaches confirm an identical failure scenario. In the present case, the load carring capacity of the stiffened panel is limited by the plate buckling capability.
