A review and generalization of the displacement-based two-dimensional plate theories is presented. The classical and shear deformation single layer theories up to the third-order are presented in a single theory through tracers. The layer-wise laminate theory developed by the author is reviewed. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the accuracy of the layer-wise theory by comparison with the analytical solution of the 3-D elasticity theory. © 1989 American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
