    Abstract

    In this study, a new peridynamic Mindlin plate formulation is introduced by utilising Euler-Lagrange equations. The classical strain energy density of a material point is converted to its corresponding peridynamic form by using Taylor’s expansions. The formulation is suitable for thick plates by considering the transverse shear deformation. Material constants do not have any limitation in the current formulation. Different types of boundary conditions are considered in numerical examples including simply supported, clamped and mixed (clamped-supported). To verify the current formulation, peridynamic solutions of the transverse displacements and rotations are compared against solutions obtained from finite element analysis
