A study to verify several methods for determining the creep-buckling failure of plate elements in compression. The data considered are the times-to-failure (times to reach a specified critical deflection) of flat plate elements of various width-thickness ratios. The range of variables investigated is limited to those of interest to the aircraft structural designer.
