The class of plates with which this paper is concerned includes as an important special case plates consisting of two orthotropic sheets of equal thickness which are laminated in such a way that the axes of elastic symmetry enclose an angle +θ with the x, y-axes in one sheet and an angle −θ in the other sheet. For plates of this type there occurs a coupling phenomenon between in-plane stretching and transverse bending which does not occur in the theory of homogeneous plates and which has not been considered in earlier work for such plates. The general results of the present paper are illustrated by means of explicit solutions for two specific plate problems.
