BENDING OF A THIN RECTANGULAR ISOTROPIC PLATE: A COSSERAT ELASTICITY ANALYSIS

ABSTRACT

The present paper deals with the mechanical behavior of a thin rectangular isotropic plate obeying the Cosserat theory of elasticity. Within the framework of infinitesimal theory of elasticity, the bending of the plate subjected to transverse loading is analyzed. The governing equations of motion are obtained based on the method of hypothesis. A semianalytical solution is presented for the governing equations using the approximation theory of Timoshenko. The solution is endorsed by comparing the numerical results with their counterparts reported in the literature for the classical Timoshenko plate theory and the Kirchhoff theory of plate deformation.
