In this paper, modification of an existing equivalent model of the corrugated panel is investigated. The axial and bending coupling of the corrugated panel supplements the previous equivalent properties when the corrugated panel has a fixed boundary condition. The analytical expressions of the coupling vertical deflections are obtained and verified by the finite element method. A method to eliminate the vertical deflection is proposed, and the importance of the coupling effect is demonstrated by the application of the modified model in a compliant structure.
