The main target of this research is to identify the effects of camber parabolic curvature on the ultimate strength and behavior of stiffened plates under in-plane compression. A parametric model for the study of the problem is created. The model includes different parameters related to plate, stiffeners, and also parabolic camber curvature. Three distinct sensitivity cases are assumed. In each sensitivity case, many different models are analyzed and their ultimate strengths are obtained using an in-house finite element program. Ultimate strength and behavior of the models with different ratios of parabolic curvature are compared to each other and interpreted.
