This paper attempts to solve the problem of the bending action of rectangular plates clamped at all four edges and subjected to lateral loading. Analytical in nature, the author’s investigation is based upon the ordinary theory of bending of thin plates as treated in Lagrange’s equation of the middle surface. The superposition method is used and applied to a number of loadings not hitherto studied.
