Abstract

A system of equilibrium equations for the deflection of thick transversely isotropic plates with constant thicknesses is derived by expanding the stress and displacement components as Fourier series in Legendre polynomials of the thickness coordinate. A method for constructing a general solution of this system is described. It is made up of three types of solutions: biharmonic, potential, and rotational.
