The present monograph deals with refined theories of elastic plates in which both bending and transverse shear effects are taken into account and with some of their applications. Generally these more exact theories result in inte gration problems of the sixth order; consequently, three mutually independent boundary conditions at each edge of the plate are required. This is in perfect agreement with the conclusions of the theory of elasticity. The expressions for shearing forces following from refined theories are then valid for the whole investigated region including its boundary where the corresponding boundary conditions for these shearing forces can be prescribed. Quite different seems to be the situation in the classical Kirchhoff-Love's theory in which the influence of transverse shearing strains is neglected. Owing to this simplification the governing differential equation developed by the classical theory is of the fourth order only; consequently, the number of boundary conditions appurtenant to the applied mode of support appears now to be in disagreement with the order of the valid governing equation. Then, limiting the validity of the expressions for shearing forces to the open region of the middle plane and introducing the notion of the so called fictitious Kirchhoff's shearing forces for the boundary of the plate, three actual boundary conditions at each edge of the plate have to be replaced by two approximate conditions transformed in the Kirchhoff's sense.
