Abstract

We use two meshless local Petrov-Galerkin formulations, namely, the MLPG1 and the MLPG5, to analyze infinitesimal deformations of a homogeneous and isotropic thick elastic plate with a higher-order shear and normal deformable plate theory. It is found that the two MLPG formulations give results very close to those obtained by other researchers and also by the three-dimensional analysis of the problem by the finite element method.
