Lindquist, David Max Wadsworth (1960) Exact and approximate solutions to the pressure-loaded plate strip with temperature distribution. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-12072005-131831
The large deflection analysis for a plate strip under uniform pressure and temperature loading is extended to include spanwise variation of temperature. An exact temperature distribution is derived and stress and deflection equations are developed for the fundamental mode thereof. A parabolic approximation to the fundamental mode is shown to be reasonably accurate. Using this approximation, a direct analogy to the case of uniform temperature distribution can be demonstrated in terms of "effective" pressure, temperature moment, and average temperature. The equilibrium equations are formally identical, permitting the use of design charts based on spanwise constant loadings.
