The objective of this paper is to numerically analyze the buckling of reinforced structures (stiffened plate) cracked under compressive stress by considering the evolution of cracks and its orientation. Numerical modeling and calculation by the finite element method, estimated the critical load for compression panel. The work presented in the article was inspired by several publications that related to this field. Brighenti have studied the behavior of elastic buckling of rectangular cracked thin plate for different boundaries conditions. Following these calculations, a calibration function was derived to estimate the load ratio Ψ to the compression function of the crack length and its inclination. We found that the variation of the critical stress is proportional to the crack dimensions. In buckling, a transverse crack is more stable than a longitudinal crack.
