The behavioral analysis of structural elements formed by slender plates, stiffened or not, is one of the most important aspects considered in the design of steel or steel-concrete composite structures. Within the regulatory body Structural Eurocodes, EN 1993-1-5:2006 provides the criteria applicable to the analysis of instability phenomena that could occur in these slender elements. The present article, in addition to providing an overview of the Code contents, proposes to review and update those criteria that, since their publishing, have been superseded by the present state of knowledge. It will also discuss the inclusion of certain aspects not accurately treated in the Code contents that require a proper analysis of the instability phenomena in slender plates.
