Abstract : The report considers the large deflection of n-layered rectangular plates with clamped edges and a uniformly distributed load. The displacement and stress-strain relations for this plate with the above boundary conditions were obtained, using known Hookeian relations. From these, using the strain energy and variational methods, the required equilibrium equations were obtained. (Author)
