The lambda-Method is checked against existing solutions for uniformly loaded square and skew plates and methods for accelerating the convergence of the solutions are developed. Symmetrical edge-functions are developed and applied to a regular polygonal plate of 4n sides. A comprehensive treatment is given of skew and rectangular plates supported by flexible beams. The solution in all cases gives an exact solution to the mathematical model, where the calculated boundary residuals replace the specified boundary conditions. A Fortran 1620 Programme is appended for the quadrilateral plate. Author
