A higher-order boundary perturbation method (B.P.M.) is formulated to treat a class of problems defined in an elliptic domain with associated boundary conditions expressed in terms of second-order derivatives. The method is applied to study a simply-supported elliptic plate subjected to a central lateral point load. The accuracy is investigated and the B.P.M. solution is found to yield highly accurate results for moderately elliptic domains.
