Symbols used:
E = Modulus of Elasticity (N/m^{2}, lbs/^{2})
q = Applied load or force (N/m^{2}, lbs/^{2})
v = Poisson’s ratio (assumed to be 0.3)
t = plate thickness, (m, in)
a = plate length, (m, in)
b = plate width, (m, in)
σ _{max} = maximum stress, (N/m^{2}, lbs/in^{2})
y_{max} = Maximum deflection (m, in)
