The behavior of long stiffened panels are simulated numerically and compared with test results of axial compression until collapse, to investigate the influence of the stiffener’s geometry. The material and geometric nonlinearities are considered in the simulation. The initial geometric imperfections, which affect the collapse behavior of stiffened panels, are also analyzed. The initial imperfections are assumed to have the shape of the linear buckling mode. Four types of stiffeners are made of mild or high tensile steel for bar stiffeners and mild steel for ‘L’ and ‘U’ stiffeners. To produce adequate boundary conditions at the loaded edges, three bays stiffened panels were used in the tests and in the numerical analysis.
