ABSTRACT
The objective of the present study deals with the numerical determination of the deflection responses for unsymmetrical bending problem of square plates that subjected to a uniformly distributed strip load by means of the finite element method. Four cases of the plate under consideration can be obtained from the combinations of simply supported (S), clamped (C) and free (F) edges, which are: (1) S-S-S-F plate, (2) C-C-C-S plate, (3) S-S-S-C plate, and (4) C-C-C-F plate. Numerical results are carried out for the deflection distributions along two middle lines, along the diagonal line, and along the free edge of the plates in the form of graph and table. Additionally, the deflection surface and its contour are also prepared and given here to more understand the plate deformation behaviors.

Keywords : Square plate, Unsymmetrical bending, Finite element method.
