Abstract
    The present research was undertaken based on the results obtained by the same authors in a sensitivity study on the buckling and ultimate strength of continuous stiffened aluminium plates. Empirical expressions are developed for predicting ultimate compressive strength of welded stiffened aluminium plates used in marine applications under combined in-plane axial compression and different levels of lateral pressure. Existing data of the ultimate compressive strength for stiffened aluminium plates numerically obtained by the authors through the previously performed sensitivity analysis are used for deriving formulations that are expressed as functions of two parameters, namely the plate slenderness ratio and the column (stiffener) slenderness ratio. Regression analysis is used in order to derive the empirical formulations. The formulae implicitly include effects of the weld on initial imperfections, and the heat-affected zone.
