The Edge Function method formerly developed by Quinlan<sup>(25)</sup> is
applied to solve the problem of thin elastic plates resting on spring
supported foundations subjected to lateral loads the method can be
applied to plates of any convex polygonal shapes, however, since most
plates are rectangular in shape, this specific class is investigated in
this thesis. The method discussed can also be applied easily to other
kinds of foundation models (e.g. springs connected to each other by a
membrane) as long as the resulting differential equation is linear.
In chapter VII, solution of a specific problem is compared with a known
solution from literature. In chapter VIII, further comparisons are given.
The problems of concentrated load on an edge and later on a corner of a
plate as long as they are far away from other boundaries are also given
in the chapter and generalized to other loading intensities and/or plates
