Hybrid metal-FRP-design attempts to combine advantages of both materials. Metal design in general leads to high surface quality, improved load introduction capability and low material cost. FRP offers high specific strength and stiffness and better fatigue behavior.
In the current study the weight saving potential of hybrid design shall be evaluated on a generic level.
Therefore structural configurations, which can be found as sub-parts of thin-walled structures, are to be examined. One of those configurations is a hybrid plate loaded in axial compression with both transversal edges simply supported, one free longitudinal edge and the other elastically restrained (see Fig.). This could for example represent a flange of a stringer or beam.
