Thin Rectangular Orthotropic Plate Under Uniform Load

Thin rectangular orthotropic plate is simply supported and loaded by the uniformly distributed pressure. The directions of axis x and y coincide with the principal directions. While neglecting self-weight, determine the maximum deflection of the plate.

Fiber Rotation Test in Laminated Plates

One layered square orthotropic plate is fully fixed at its middle point and subjected to the pressure. Compare the deflections of the plate corners for different fiber angles to check the correctness of the transformation.

Orthotropic Cantilever in Tension

A cantilever with fibers, which don't run in direction of the beam axis, from a square cross‑section with a tensile pressure. Calculation of the maximum deflection.
