The work reported here is a simplified approximate analysis to take into account, the effects of allowing the supported edges of a rectangular plate to deflect, both in bending deflection, and in rotational (twisting) deflection and is for a plate with two opposite edges simply supported, the two remaining edges supported on elastic beams with finite flexural and torsional rigidity.
