The Design of Flat Plates

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... F.A. Gerard
