The Bending and Stretching of Plates is written by one of the world's leading authorities on plate-behaviour. Although the mathematical content is necessarily high, the aim is to give a clear physical insight into elastic plate behaviour; the style is thus appropriate to engineers and applied mathematicians. Small-deflexion theory is treated in Part 1, with a discussion of basic equations (including thermal effects and multi-layered anisotropic plates, rectangular plates, circular and other shaped plates, plates whose boundaries are amenable to conformal transformation, plates with variable thickness, and approximate methods). Large-deflexion theory is treated in Part 2 in chapters dealing with basic equations and exact solutions, approximate methods (including post-buckling behaviour), and asymptotic theories for very thin plates (including tension field theory and inextensional theory).
