The direct boundary element formulation is presented for the finite deflection of thin elastic plate subjected to mechanical and thermal loads. The integral equations for the Karman-type coupled governing field equation in terms of the basic boundary values and for the simplified Berger equation are shown and compared. The lower order derivative of the deflection appearing in the domain integrals facilitates numerical computation during iteration for the geometrically nonlinear analysis.
