The buckling behaviour of thin skew plates with planform taper is investigated. Buckling curves are presented for a wide range of taper ratios, subject to a uniform in-plane compressive load. The results show that planform taper leads to buckling strength increases, proportional to the reduction in planform area, for a range of skew angles and aspect ratios. The paper also provides useful design information, allowing rapid assessment of the increase in buckling strength above the skew or equivalent rectangular plate datum for a range of aspect ratios with symmetrical boundary conditions.
