In previous papers [1, 2], the postbuckling behavior of rectangular plates under edge compression has been studied theoretically under eight different boundary conditions, and numerical solutions are presented for square plates with and without initial deflection. To compare with these results, experiments were carried out by using aluminum square plates, and the relations of the maximum deflection, stresses, and strains at typical points in the plate with applied loads were determined under four different boundary conditions. It is found that the experimental results are in reasonable agreement with those theoretically predicted.
