Numerical values of deflections and moments are given for uniformly loaded rectangular plates with a pair of opposite sides simply supported and the others either simply supported or clamped. The plates are tapered in a direction parallel to the simply supported sides. Data are given for two tapers and for plate aspect ratios equal to 1 (square plates), 1.5 and 2.
