The paper is devoted to the buckling response and load carrying capacity of thin-walled open cross-section profiles made of hybrid, multi-layered materials; specifically Fiber Metal Laminates (FML) subjected to static compression loading. The objective of the study is a comparison of ‘classical’ Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) layers versus thin-ply technology design. Analytical, finite element method and experimental investigations are performed to investigate different material combinations and sub-laminate tailoring strategies. These are compared with more common FML designs for thin-walled columns and rectangular plates.
