The paper presents a survey of the kinematical hypotheses and the governing equations of the refined theories of plates. By carrying out a comparative analysis of various, apparently different, kinematical hypotheses proposed by various authors, it is shown that the kinematical hypothesis by Vlasov (1957) is a pattern for all of them.
