Abstract : An analysis of swept-back (skewed) orthotropic flat plates in bending is presented. The technique of analysis is based upon a variational approach. Charts for the maximum deformations of skewed plates of various geometric and material properties are included, as well as a computer program for the analysis of such structures. (Author)
