Loading:
 Point load Pc = N dyne Kgf gf lbf x coordinate a = km m cm mm micron mi yd ft in mil y coordinate b =
Geometry:
 Width Lx = km m cm mm micron mi yd ft in mil Length Ly = Thickness h = km m cm mm micron mi yd ft in mil
Material
 Young's modulus E = Pa kPa MPa GPa psi ksi lbf/ft^2 kgf/cm^2 atm bar mmHg inHg ftH2O Poisson's ratio =
Output:
 Unit of displacement w = km m cm mm micron mi yd ft in mil Unit of stress = Pa kPa MPa GPa psi ksi lbf/ft^2 kgf/cm^2 atm bar mmHg inHg ftH2O Terms in x direction (m) = 1 2 4 8 16 32 Terms in y direction (n) = 1 2 4 8 16 32

 Displacement  wat loading = w(a, b) = 0.175163322221 mm 0.175 mm The above displacement is based on the first 2 2 = 4 terms of the series solution.
 Stress    = 1.97576308103 MPa 1.98 MPa = 1.97576308103 MPa 1.98 MPa The above calculation is based on the first 2 2 = 4 terms of the series solution.
