The Bubnov-Galerkin method is used to solve the problem of the bending of a clamped flexible orthotropic plate. An equation relating the deflection and the load is obtained. An experiment on a plate made of polyester plastic reinforced with satin-weave glass fabric is described. It is shown that within certain limits the deflections at the center of the plate and the combined stresses along the clamped edges are in good agreement with the theoretical values. The limits of applicability of the first-approximation formulas are investigated.
