The research work presented in this thesis is focused or investigating the buckling behaviour of wide range pultruded structural GRP profiles. Investigations of both global and local buckling of GRP profiles have been carried out to determine the buckling capacities. An investigation on improving the buckling capacity of plates and columns was carried out. The program of research undertaken to enhance column buckling capacity included analytical and finite element modelling of the buckling of GRP plates and columns and experimental work on the buckling of GRP columns.
