Abstract:

This paper presents the large-deflexion analysis of an elliptical thin plate of lenticular section whose temperature varies linearly through its thickness. The plate may possess initial curvatures whose principal axes do not necessarily coincide with the axes of the ellipse. The analysis is exact within the spirit of largedeflexion plate theory, and embraces such phenomena as curling, asymmetrical buckling and snap-through buckling. Author
