: Can anyone help me with this. I have a 3/4" thick aluminum plate, 20" by 16". It has atmospheric pressure on one side and vacuum on the other, the pressure on the plate being 15 pounds per square inch. How do I calculate the maxumim deflection at the center of the plate?

: I would love to have a formula to understand how to do it,

: Many thanks.

I think you need the Beam deflection - Evenly distributed formulae( Calculation). I don't know it right off. There is this sort of calculator on engineers . Look under the calculators page for the beam deflection calculator.
