Abstract

The solutions to problems of laterally loaded, simply supported rectangular plates are classical ones that can be found in standard textbooks. It is found that forces directed downward must be present to prevent the corners of the plate from rising up during bending. The objective of the present analysis is to determine the extent to which such a plate will rise if the corner force is not present and the plate is unilaterally constrained.
