The stability of plates reinforced by any number of equal and equidistant longitudinal ribs has been considered. By transformation of the system of equations established by S. Timoshenko the general solution of it has been developed, giving directly the rigidity of ribs required to secure any given critical compressive force of the plate. Two numerical examples of stiffenings used in ship design have been discussed.
