Calculation PLATE-BUCKLING

In PLATE-BUCKLING, is it necessary to run an analysis for individual and partial buckling panels?

Answer

According to EN 1993-1-5, clause 10 (3), Note 1, the check in PLATE-BUCKLING is always performed on the total panel, because the possibly existing stiffeners are considered in the FE model.

Thus, the checks for partial buckling panels are not necessary.
