FREE Software for the Calculation of the Elasticity Solution for Plates


This software calculates the elasticity solution for isotropic plates subjected to a sinusoidal pressure distribution on the top surface. The main goal of this program is educational. However, the results obtained could be used to test the accuracy of Finite Element codes or other numerical methods.


The inputs are chosen to reproduce the results reported in Tables 7,8 and 9. Both the amplitudes and dimensionless amplitudes are calculated.
