In this paper, the elastic buckling of cracked thin plates repaired by composite laminate patch under compression was studied by the finite element method. The effects of the shape of the repairing patch, size of the repairing patch, and the thickness of the patch on the elastic buckling load were evaluated. The results show that the size and thickness of the repairing patch must be optimized to increase the performance of the repairing.
