Consistent theories of isotropic and anisotropic plates

Reinhold Kienzler, Patrick Schneider
In this paper, the uniform-approximation technique in combination with the pseudo-reduction technique is applied in order to derive consistent theories for isotropic and anisotropic plates. The approach is used to assess and validate the plate theories already established in the literature. Further lines of research are indicated.
