Truncating Classical Solutions of Bending of Square Wood-Base Plates
Keywords:Wood-base plates, bending
AbstractClassical solutions for bending of orthotropic plates consist of infinite series and flexural rigidities. The computations of solutions would not be feasible if the computer were not available. The objective of this study was to truncate classical solutions into simplified solutions. Simplified solutions consist of only flexural rigidities with coefficients. Because of the elimination of infinite series in classical solutions, the simplified solutions are easier to solve and can be calculated without using a computer. The simplified solutions give practically the same results as those of the classical solutions. Limited experimental verification of these solutions was made using southern pine plywood and composite sandwich panels (particleboard with veneer faces).
