Ques: I have a question regarding solid mechanics and plate theory,is 2 layer plate means laminated plate or simply refers to as a plate?

• The assumption is a perfect connection between the two plates so they behave as one ie no slip. Jun 10 '18 at 4:33
• Thankyou for your feedback. you mean it acts as one . But if we have 2 layers plate where the force is applied on the upper layer and deformation on the lower plate, then which category of plate theory this is in? Jun 10 '18 at 20:42
• I am sorry to inform you that the 2 layer plate are having each layer of different material. Jun 10 '18 at 21:03
• The assumption still stands... in theory... unless you are working a bi-metallic strip. Jun 10 '18 at 21:06
