An experimental program was performed to determine the effect of aspect ratio on point loaded cantilever plate bending moments. The experimental results are compared to theoretical values based on an extension of the work done on cantilever plate deflections by Szmelter, Sulikowski, and Lipinski [1]. The theory and experiment give excellent agreement over the range of aspect ratio studied. A series of curves is presented which gives the maximum plate bending moment as a function of aspect ratio and load position. These curves indicate the transition of plate bending moments from the cantilever beam case to the infinitely wide cantilever plate case.
