This lesson covers the concept of bending of plates, focusing on how they deform and develop stresses under transverse loading. It explains the process using a rectangular plate as an example, discussing how tensile stresses occur at the bottom of the plate and compressive stresses at the top. The lesson also introduces the concept of anticlastic curvature, which occurs due to the contraction at the bottom fiber and extension at the top fiber. It further delves into the mathematical aspect of the topic, explaining how to calculate the moment produced by distributed stresses and the relationship between moment and curvature. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the bending of circular plates and the application of these concepts in pressure vessels.

- Plates undergo deformation and develop stresses when subjected to transverse loading.
- Tensile stresses occur at the bottom of the plate and compressive stresses at the top during bending.
- Anticlastic curvature is a phenomenon that occurs due to the contraction at the bottom fiber and extension at the top fiber.
- The moment produced by distributed stresses can be calculated using integration.
- The relationship between moment and curvature can be expressed mathematically.
- These concepts are applicable in real-world scenarios such as the bending of circular plates and pressure vessels.
