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  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     max = 0.175966540277 MPa 0.176 MPa The above calculation is based on the first 2 2 = 4 terms of the series solution.
