Classical Theory of Plates

In  Chap. 4 on Beams, Frames, and Rings we were concerned with structures having the distinguishing feature wherein one of the geometric dimensions dominated the configuration. This feature permitted us to make vast simplifications in that we could replace the three-dimensional body by a curve and thus sharply reduce the number of variables of the problem while still yielding important information with considerable accuracy.
