CE595: Finite Elements in Elasticity
Amit H. Varma, and Tim WhalenPurdue UniversitySchool of Civil Engineering
 
Behavior of Plates
The behavior of plates is similar to that of beams. Theyboth carry transverse loads by bending action.
Plates carry transverse loads by bending and shear just likebeams, but they have some peculiarities
We will focus on isotropic homogenous plates.

The middle plane of the plate undergoes deflections w(x,y). The topand bottom surfaces of the plate undergo deformations almost like arigid body along with the middle surface.
