AN APPROXIMATE THREE-DIMENSIONAL THEORY OF PLATES WITH APPLICATION TO CRACK PROBLEMS

The equations take into account a stress variation across the thickness of the plate which depends on the characteristic dimensions arising in a given boundary-value problem such as the cavity size, plate thickness, etc. The system of equations is formulated in terms of the generalized transverse displacement and two other functions which represent the distribution of the transverse shear stresses in the plane of the plate. One of the significant and new features of the solution is that the stress state depends on the plate thickness to crack length ratio and a dimensionless parameter characterizing the stress distribution across the thickness.
