Effect of the properties of the material of the buckling of a plate

In  it was shown with reference to the cylindrical bending of a plate that the Kirchhoff-Love hypothesis is asympototically accurate for determining the critical load irrespective of the properties of the material. However, the question of the dependence of the critical load on the material properties was left unexplored. This question is now numerically investigated. Curves characterizing the variation of the critical load with relative shear modulus are presented.
