Abstract: Buckling and post-buckling analysis of isotropic and laminated composite cylindrical plates/panels under compressive load has been done by equilibrium path approach (arc-length technique). The impact of cut outs on buckling and post-buckling load of an isotropic and laminated composite cylindrical plates/panels has been assessed by utilizing summed up generalized finite element programming ANSYS. In post-buckling Eigen mode imperfection shape is picked for creating geometric undulations on cylindrical panels with/without circular cut-outs. The impact of the area and size of the cut out and furthermore the composite utilize point on the buckling load of laminated composite cylindrical panel is explored with simply supported boundary conditions. The post-buckling consequences of laminated cylindrical panels have been validated with existing appropriate writing (18) and are additionally stretched out for analysis of sheets/plates with cutouts. It has been seen that the as the curvature of the panel increases load bearing capacity is increasing irrespective of the material and with/without cut out.
