A method is given for the direct-stress analysis of orthotropic cantilever plates, without the usual need for intermediate deflection calculations. The partial differential equation of plate theory is reduced to a set of ordinary linear differential equations by assuming Fourier-series distributions of stress couples and shear-stress resultants in the plate: The coefficients of these series are determined by the principle of least work.
