Document Type: Journal Paper


Rectangular plate, simply supported along three edges and free on fourth, is subjected on one face to lateral pressure which is uniform parallel to free edge but can vary linearly in direction perpendicular to free edge; infinite series for deflections, moments, shear and reaction force distribution were derived and programmed for computation on high speed digital computer.
