This calculator computes the displacement of a simply-supported rectangular plate under a uniformly distributed load.

Inputs
Loading:   Uniform loading p =  
 Geometry: 
 Width Lx =    
 Length Ly =  
 Thickness h =    
 Material
 Young's modulus E =    
 Poisson's ratio nu =  
Output: 
 Unit of displacement w =  
 Unit of stress =  
 Terms in x direction (m) =  
 Terms in y direction (n) =  

 
 
Displacement

wmax = w(lx/2, ly/2) = 0.0172988270109 mm ~ 0.0173 mm

The above displacement is based on the first 2 2 = 4 terms of the series solution.

Stress
Mx
My

max = 0.175966540277 MPa ~ 0.176 MPa

The above calculation is based on the first 2 2 = 4 terms of the series solution.
