Effect of the Tangential Loads on the Bending of Elastic Plates

  • Kristine L. MartirosyanEmail author
Part of the Advanced Structured Materials book series (STRUCTMAT, volume 15)


In this work, the problem of bending of a semi-infinite plate under the action of tangential loads is considered on the base of the classical theory, theory of Reissner-Hencky-Mindlin in Vasilyev’s sense, and theory of Ambartsumyan. The comparisons between deflections, transverse shear forces and moments by first-order and higher-order refined theories are performed.
