Abstract: The branching of unsymmetric equilibrium states from axisymmetric equilibrium states for clamped circular plates subjected to a uniform edge thrust and a uniform lateral pressure is analyzed in this paper. The branching process is called wrinkling and the loads at which branching occurs are called wrinkling loads. The nonlinear von Kármán plate theory is employed. The wrinkling loads are determined by solving numerically the eigenvalue problem obtained by linearizing about a symmetric equilibrium state. The post-wrinkling behavior is studied by a perturbation expansion in the neighborhood of the wrinkling loads.
