An approximate rigid, perfectly plastic analysis which retains the influence of finite deflections is presented herein for a uniformly loaded, fully clamped rectangular plate. This theoretical procedure provides reasonable engineering estimates of the recent experiments of R. Hooke and B. Rawlings on plates with aspect ratios in the range 1/3 equal to or less than beta equal to or less than 1. The approximate method also predicts values which agree fairly well with the tests of Young on long rectangular plates (beta equal 1/3), and for large permanent deflections gives similar values to the analysis by J.E. Greenspon when beta equal 1.
