Abstract The elasticity problem of a thin plate with an edge is considered using asymptotic methods. The small parameter e describes the relative thickness of the plate. In the case when the elasticity coefficients are everywhere of the same order of magnitude, the asymptotic behaviour of the plate is such that the angle of the edge remains constant under the deformation (the junction is called `rigid'). We also consider a junction mode of a narrow filet (the order of its width is O( e )) of a… CONTINUE READING
