hello all, I am in the process of measuring coefficients of a rectangular panel using given table in textbooks to obtain them. I have attached a simple figure of two situations; left is my current situation to analyze- a clamped end and compressive force on the other end. The situations that are in the textbooks that correlate to my situation is for symmetrical compressive loading on both sides, like the one shown in the figure to the right. Can I interpret the coefficient I obtain from the textbook situation to directly correlate with mine, or would there be a factor ? What if the situation on the left involved a simply supported end instead of fixed end? Thanks everybody for your help in advance.
