The bending by uniform lateral loading, buckling by two-dimensional hydrostatic pressure, and the flexural vibrations of simply supported polygonal plates are investigated. The method of meeting the boundary conditions at discrete points, together with the Marcus membrane analog , is found to be very advantageous. Numerical examples include the calculation of the deflections and moments, and buckling loads of triangular square, and hexagonal plates. A special technique is then given, whereby the boundary conditions are exactly satisfied along one edge, and an example of the buckling of an isosceles, right-angled triangle plate is analyzed. Finally, the frequency equation for the flexural vibrations of simply supported polygonal plates is shown to be the same as that for buckling under hydrostatic pressure, and numerical results can be written by analogy. All numerical results agree well with the exact solutions, where the latter are known.
