Loading:   Uniform load p =
Geometry:
 Radius ro = km m cm mm micron mi yd ft in mil 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

 Displacement  The maximum displacement occurs at the center of the plate, r = 0. = 0.066650390625 mm 0.0667 mm
 Stress   The maximum bending moment occurs at the center of the plate, r = 0. The maximum stress occurs at the center of the plate near surface, r = 0, z = ±h/2.  max = 0.3046875 MPa 0.305 MPa
