LARGE DEFLECTIONS OF PLATES WITH UNSUPPORTED EDGES

A method of including the unsupported edge condition in the large deflection of rectangular plates is proposed. Solutions are obtained which use a finite-difference technique based on the dynamic-relaxation method. Comparisons are made with certain theoretical small-deflection solutions. Two particular problems are considered in detail, lateral loading of plates supported at the corners and the post-buckling of a plate with one unsupported edge.
