Comparison of solutions in a frame-work of different plate theories

Abdel Fattah M. El-Zebidy, Zbigniew F. Baczyński
A system of 2D-model equations characterizing elastostatic states, based on a non-classical continuum theory with internal constrains is given. This model is compared with lower-order and higher-order plate theories through application to a particular problem involving an infinite strip acted upon by a sinusoidal surface loads. The solution is compared also with the exact solution to this problem.
