Stress Maximum (Equations for σa and σb are stresses due to bending only;):
Stress Maximum
Stress Maximum
Stress Maximum Including Direct Stress and σa

Stress Maximum + P/t
Stress Maximum + P/t

Where α βx and βy depend on ratios a / b and P / PE where:

Coeeficient pE

Symbols used:
E = Modulus of Elasticity (N/m2, lbs/2)
q = Applied Load or Force to Flat Area of Plate (N/m2, lbs/2)
P = Tension or Compression to Short Edges (N/m, Lbs/in)
v = Poisson’s ratio (assumed to be 0.3)
t = plate thickness, (m, in)
a = plate length, (m, in)
b = plate width, (m, in)
σ max = maximum stress, (N/m2, lbs/in2)
ymax = Maximum deflection (m, in)
α = From Table A
βx = From Table A
βy = From Table A
