Deformation of flat plate with uniform thickness

Deformation of flat plate with uniform thickness

Deformation of flat plate with uniform thickness

(OP)
Hi

I'm looking for a formula that will yield the maximum stress and deformation of a flat plate under uniform load.  I understand from a previous post that Pounder's plate theory is the way to go, but I do not have a copy of the text they reference.  Is it available on the net?

RE: Deformation of flat plate with uniform thickness

For circular and annular plates you'll find it in the site below (rectangular plates to come...).

Thank you.  Unfortunately I am looking for the rectangular plate formula.

RE: Deformation of flat plate with uniform thickness

Try "Roark's Formulas for Stress & Strain" - McGraw-Hill.

RE: Deformation of flat plate with uniform thickness

Two sources that I can think of:

- Roark's Book chapter 10  Table 26
- Mark's Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers 1978 edition page 5-52 & 5-53

If you don't have these resources post you details and I am sure someone will post an answer.  Rich

RE: Deformation of flat plate with uniform thickness

I think there is a Mathcad 2000 Pro sheet downloadable from the Collaboratory site. I can send it (Plate10b.mcd) to you, of if you can't make it operative, a .doc file to see the formulation at least. Post if so an e-mail address.

Thanks everyone, I have found a copy of the info and it is exactly what I needed.
