Common Case The formulas of this section are based on the following assumptions: (1) The plate is flat, of uniform thickness, and of homogeneous isotropic material; (2) the thickness is not more than about one-quarter of the least transverse dimension, and the maximum deflection is not more than about one-half the thickness; (3) all forces—loads and reactions—are normal to the plane of the plate; and (4) the plate is nowhere stressed beyond the elastic limit. For convenience in discussion, it will be assumed further that the plane of the plate is horizontal.
