When evaluating the support reactions of a plate supported by line supports, it is noticeable that the support reaction pz' does not correspond to the shear force and deviates significantly. What can be the reason for this?


In case of significant deviations, the problem may be caused by the applied bending theory (Mindlin or Kirchhoff).
