The type of plate to be considered is that whose thickness is small compared with the overall linear dimensions and whose maximum deflection, under the application of load in a direction normal to the plane of the plate, is small compared with the thickness. The example which most frequently occurs is that of a plate bent under the application of uniformly distributed load, and the deflection of any such plate must satisfy the equation...
