This paper is concerned with the characterisation of the performance of fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) single-skin plates under extreme lateral pressure loading. An outline is presented of approaches adopted for design synthesis and to identify some limitations. A brief description is given of an experimental programme, covering the testing of a series of FRP plate panels with varying aspect ratios and material lay-ups. Included in this is the overall, principal test results. Finally, a simple non-linear, finite element analysis based approach to modelling such plate behaviour is presented.
