A general nonlinear theory for the dynamics of elastic anisotropic plates that ac- counts for transverse shear strains and moderate rotations is presented. The theory contains, as special cases, the von Kármán classical plate theory, the first-order shear deformation theory (i.e., the Reissner-Mindlin plate theory) and the third- order shear deformation plate theory. The theory is characterized, even for isotropic plates, by strong coupling between various equations of motion. © 1987 by ASME.
