This paper introduces a boundary element solution for thick Reissner plates,
with free-edge conditions, resting on a generalized elastic foundation.
expressions for fundamental solution parameters are given in terms of separated
complex Bessel functions.
Case studies based upon circular and rectangular
plates, under different types of loading, were analysed, and the BEM results
obtained have confirmed the accuracy of the derivations introduced.
The actual behaviour of plates on deformable foundations is a complex
phenomenon, which has led to the development of many idealized foundation
Generalized foundation models represent a compromise between the
completely discontinuous Winkler model and the completely continuous elastic
solid model , and the most popular general...
