Document Type: Journal Paper


The problem of bending of a rectangular plate, elastically supported on variable rigidity beams, subjected to a transverse loading or temperature gradient is solved in this paper. Specific combinations of support are examined and, in addition, a detailed solution is given for a square plate with one edge free.
