Abstract

Geometrically nonlinear static analysis of an anisotropic thick plate resting on nonlinear two-parameter elastic foundations has been studied. The plate formulation is based on first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT). The governing equation of bending for rectangular orthotropic thick plate is derived by using von Karman equation. The nonlinear static deflections of orthotropic plates on elastic foundation are investigated using the discrete singular convolution method. The effects of foundation, material and geometric parameters of orthotropic plates on nonlinear deflections are investigated.

Keywords

Orthotropic plate, nonlinear analysis, static deflection, discrete singular convolution.
