Analytical particular solutions of Chebyshev polynomials are obtained for problems of Reissner plates under arbitrary loadings, which are governed by three coupled second-ordered partial differential equation (PDEs). Our solutions can be written explicitly in terms of monomials. By using these formulas, we can obtain the approximate particular solution when the arbitrary loadings have been represented by a truncated series of Chebyshev polynomials. In the derivations of particular solutions, the three coupled second-ordered PDE are first transformed into a single six-ordered PDE through the Hörmander operator decomposition technique. Then the particular solutions of this six-ordered PDE can be found in the author's previous study. These formulas are further implemented to solve problems of Reissner plates under arbitrary loadings in which the homogeneous solutions are complementarily solved by the method of fundamental solutions (MFS). Numerical experiments are carried out to validate these particular solutions. Due to the exponential convergence of both Chebyshev interpolation and the MFS, our numerical results are extremely accurate.
