 Parallelogram Plate Uniform Loading Over Entire Plate Stress Along Free Edge Deflection Along Free Edge Stress at Center of Plate Deflection at Center of Plate: Applicable at a/b = 2.0

 θ 0° 30° 45° 60° β1 3.05 2.20 1.78 0.91 β2 2.97 2.19 1.75 1.00 α1 2.58 1.50 1.00 0.46 α2 2.47 1.36 0.82 0.21

Where:

q = Applied load (force) (lbs/in2)
v = Poisson’s ratio (assumed to be 0.3)
β = Table data for a/b = 2.0
α = Table data for a/b = 2.0
E = Modulus of Elasticity (lb/in2)
a = Width of plate (in)
b = Height of plate (in)
σmax = stress, (lbs/in2)
ymax = Deflection (in)
