Abstract

This report presents a simplified large‐deflexion theory for thin flat plates subjected to normal loading. The theory is applicable to plates in which the loading is resisted primarily by the flexural rigidity of the plate. The middle surface of the plate is assumed to be inextensional so that the mode of deformation is a developable surface. There is good agreement with experiment.
