ABSTRACT
A rather limited amount of analytical solutions is available in the case of plates with mixed boundary conditions between clamped and free edges, because the clamped and free edge conditions do not have a common boundary condition. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to deal with the numerical finite element determination for the deflection responses of square plates having mixed conditions between clamped and free edges under a uniformly distributed load. The obtained results are provided for the deflection distri-butions along the middle line, along the diagonal line, and along the free edge of the plates. In addition, the deflection surface and its contour are also graphically demonstrated herein.

Keywords : Square plate, Mixed support conditions, Finite element method.
