ABSTRACT
Numerical experiments for the elastic bending analysis of single square plates having one edge mixed between simple and clamped supports, loaded by uniformly distri-buted load are studied in this work. Nine different plate configurations have been analyzed using the ANSYS computer finite element code to determine the response of the plates in terms of the deflection. The obtained results are presented for the deflection surface and deflection contour of the plate. Also, the distributions of deflection along two middle lines, along the diagonal line, and along the free edge of the plates are demonstrated graphically. Numerical values for the plate deflection are given in tabular form for easy use by other researchers.

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