Abstract:

The equation of an infinite thin plate under the influence of point loads and mid-plane forces is developed. The properties of the function as the tension goes to zero or becomes large is investigated. This function is then used ot interpolate scattered data, giving the user the parameter of tension to give some control over overshoot when the surface has large gradients. Examples illustrating the behavior of the interpolation function are given. Author.
