plates is presented in this study. The fundamental theory was derived based
on the generic first-order transversely shearable deformation shell theory involving
Codazzi-Gauss geometrical discretion, in which this fundamental equation and
its boundary conditions were strenuously derived using Hamilton's principle.
Then the developed theory was applied to plate of rectangular plane-form, at
which the Navier’ solution procedure
for the response was derived and its mode shapes were evaluated in the simply
supported boundary condition. Moreover, the theory is intended for a wide range
of common smart materials. Thus, among the entire primary variable the center
deflection was selected for validation and verification purpose and studied
for four different laminations schemes. Whereas, the result has shown a close
agreement with those of higher order shear deformation theory that obtained
from literature.]]>Bao, Y.,1996Bassiouny, E.,2006Pan, E. and F. Han,2005Heyliger, P.R. and E. Pan,2004Perez-Fernandez, L.D. J. Bravo-Castillero, R. Rodriguez-Ramos and F.J.
