This paper is concerned with fundamental solutions of static and dynamic linear inextensional theories of thin elastic plates. It is shown that the appropriate conditions which a fundamental singularity must satisfy at the pole follow from the requirement that the reciprocal theorem is satisfied everywhere in the region occupied by the plate. Furthermore, dynamic Green’s function for a plate bounded by two concentric circular boundaries is derived by means of the addition theorem of Bessel functions. The derived Green’s function represents the response of the plate to a harmonically oscillating normal concentrated load situated at an arbitrary point on the plate.
