Document Type: Journal Paper


Closed form solutions are obtained for the deflections, residual deflections, residual membrane tensions, and other quantities of engineering interest for infinitely long clamped rectangular plates with large deflections, under uniform pressure. The analysis assumes infinite rigidity, in the plane of the plate, of the boundary supports. Charts are provided for convenience in solving the equations.
