### Rectangular Plate Three Edges Simply Supported Uniformly increasing along the a side Equation and Calculator

Flat Rectangular Plate; Three Edges Simply Supported, one Edge Fixed Stress and Deflection With Uniformly increasing along the a side Equation and Calculator.

Per. Roarks Formulas for Stress and Strain Formulas for flat plates with straight boundaries and constant thickness

Rectangular plate; three edges simply supported, one short edge (b) fixed with Uniform loading over entire plate. Stress Maximum: Deflection: Symbols used:
E = Modulus of Elasticity (N/m2, lbs/2)
q = Applied Load or Force to Flat Area of Plate (N/m2, 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/m2, lbs/in2)
ymax = Maximum deflection (m, in)
α = From Table A
β = From Table A
