Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am no mechanical engineer and my knowledge in bending is limited to Euler-Bernouilli beam theory.

I wish to analytically calculate the normal stress of a plate bent by four points bending. I have already calculated this stress for a beam.

However I cannot apply the beam theory to a plate.

Does someone know a tutorial or an article giving specifically the four-points bending of a plate and its solution?

Thank you
