The results of four tests on narrow stiffened panels under axial compression until collapse and beyond are presented to investigate the ultimate strength of stiffened panels. Tension tests are used to evaluate the material properties of the stiffened panels. The tests are made on panels with two half bays plus one full bay in the longitudinal direction. Initial loading cycles were used to relief the residual stresses of the stiffener panels. The strain gauges are set on the plates and stiffeners to record the distribution of strain. The displacement load relationship is established. The ultimate strength behavior, modes of failure and load-carrying capacity of the stiffened panels are investigated with the experiment.
