Abstract

The problem of large deflections of thin flat plates is rederived here using a novel integral equation approach. These plate deformations are governed by the von Karman plate theory. The numerical solution that is implemented combines both boundary and interior elements in the discretization of the continuum. The formulation also illustrates the adaptability of the boundary element technique to nonlinear problems. Included in the examples here are static, dynamic and buckling applications.
