Does any one have any idea how I could begin to examine the field of two conducting plates which are side by side instead of parallel ?

This does not have an exact analytic solution unless the plates are infinite coplanar strips so that the problem devolves to 2 dimensions. Search the forum for threads on approximate formulas (I remember seeing one such thread), or you can use any one of the standard EM modeling packages to model your geometry.
