Formulas for curved stiffened panels

Formulas for curved stiffened panels

I've recently graduated from Mechanical Engineering and have started doing some FEA work on curved stiffened aluminium panels. I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a concise set of analytical equations regarding the above so I can verify some of my results, no doubt many are way off the mark!!!
Thanks in advance,

RE: Formulas for curved stiffened panels

The bible of Canadian structural design of aluminum is called Strength of Aluminum by Alcan.  You will find it ALL in there, flat plates, curved plates, stiffeners, corrugated plate, slenderness ratios, you name it.
