The existence and uniqueness of the solutions to an infinite system of nonlinear equations arising in thedynamic analysis of large deflection of a plate are discussed. Under the assumption that the rim of the plate is prevented from inplane motions, explicit equation for the coupling parameter is given.

In the analysis of classical mechanics problems, there are
cases where linear mathematical model can not fully describe the
phenomena. If the deflection of the plate is of order of magnitude
of its thickness, the differential equations for the deflection and
displacements can be written in terms of nonlinear equations. These
nonlinear equations are usually difficult to obtain the solution. Thus
several attempts have been tried to obviate the difficulties.
Among these attempts, it was Berger’s method which drew
much attention.
Berger[1] derived a simplified nonlinear equations for a plate
with large deflections by assuming that the strain energy due to the
second invariants of the middle surface strains can be neglected
when deriving the differential equations by energy method. Berger
restricted his analysis to static and isotropic cases. Later, his
procedure was generalized to dynamics of isotropic plates by Nash
and Modeer [2] and to dynamic phenomena in anisotropic plates
and shallow shells by Nowinski [3]. Berger’methods is dealt in
recent books [5, 6].
There many are papers giving explicit solutions to various
cases, however the search for the existence and uniqueness of the
solution is rare, thus it is the purpose of this paper to discuss this
matter.
The governing equations are
where w = deflectiom of plate in the normal direction. u, v =displacement in plane of plate.
E = modulus of elasticity.
The coupling parameter is now determined from the equation
(2) as follows, under the assumption that the rim of the plate is
prevented from inplane motions
We attempt to find Fourier series solutions to (1) when q = 0 and the plate is simply supported.
When this solution is substituted in (1) and (3) we find
We discuss the existence and uniqueness of the solutions to above infinite system of nonlinear equations. The initial conditions on (6) will be taken as
If we multiply (6) by T’ jk and sum j, k from 1 to infinity, we can show that
At first glance it would appear that if the initial conditions (7)
and (8) satisfy a finite energy
condition, i.e.,
then (6) should have a solution for all t > 0. Indeed this is the case for finite system of the form
(6) since the finite system
has associated with it a Lipschitz constant. Therefore, successive approximation method may be applied to prove the existence of solution to (11). However, the infinite system of equations (6) is not Lipschitz continuous since the coefficients of Tjk is unbounded as j, k → ∞. Thus the method of successive approximation fails and an alternative procedure is necessary.
In section 2, it will be shown that under the initial conditions (7) and (8) solution of the finite system (11) converge to a solution (6) as L, M → ∞. In section 3 it will be shown that the solution of (6) satisfying initial conditions (7) and (8) is unique.
To prove solution existence of (6), we define a set of functions Tjk,LM in the following way: For j, k ≤ L, M, Tjk,LM is a solution of the finite system of equations (11) satisfying the initial conditions (7) and (8) for j = 1, 2, · · · , M and k = 1, 2, · · · , L and for j > L, k > M set Tjk,LM = 0. The functions Tjk,LM are solutions of the infinite system (6),i.e.
If in addition the initial data (7) and (8) satisfy the finite energy condition (10) it follows that
Thus there exist constants M1, M2 and M3 independent of L, M
Lemma 1. |A’LM| is uniformly bounded independent of L, M
where prime indicates differentiation with respect to t.
Proof. After differentiating the function ALM, if we employ
Schwarz inequality we obtain
in view of the relations (15) and (16).
Lemma 2. |ALM| is uniformly bounded independent of L, M
Proof. |ALM | is uniformly bounded independent of L, M from
the relation (17).
Thus ALM is uniformly bounded and equicontinuous; by
Arzela’s lemma, there exists a subsequence {ALM,i} which
converges uniformly to a continuous function A(t). Let Tjk be the
solution of the(linear) equation
satisfying the initial conditions (7) and (8). The existence of solutions to (6) is settled by the
following theorem.
Theorem 1. The infinite system of (6) have a solution satisfying the initial data (7) and (8). Proof. It is only necessary to show that the solutions of linear system (19) furnish a solution of system (6). For this purpose it suffices to show that
The series which occurs in (20) converges since(cf.(17))
The equality in (20) follows from the estimate
The right side of (22) can be made arbitrarily small by first choosing L, M, then choosing Li, Mi.
In this section it will be shown that the infinite system (6) has at most one solution satisfying the initial conditions (7) and (8). We write (6) in the following way.
Let T_{jk} and S_{jk} be solutions of (6) satisfying the initial conditions (7) and (8) i.e. T_{jk} is the solution of (23) with q(t) being given by (25) and S_{jk} is the solution of
If we multiply (23) by Sjk and from the resulting equation, we substract (26) multiplied by Tjk and integrate it from zero to infinity, we get, after integrating by parts
where we have used the initial conditions (7),(8),(28),(29). According to Gel’fand and Levitan[4] there exists function K(t, x) having continuous partial derivatives of first and second order such that
If we substitute (31) into (23),we find that the partial differential equation
and the boundary conditions
are satisfied. Similarly,
and the boundary conditions
Thus if we substitute (31) and (35) into (30), we find that
where c(t) = q(t) − p(t). Making change of variables and changing the order of integration in (39) we get
The left hand side of (40) is a function of λ,whereas right hand side is a constant. The equality holds only when both sides are equal to zero. Thus
and from Gronwall’s Lemma we get c(t) = 0, i.e.,
Let U_{j} = K_{j} − S_{j} . We show U_{j} = 0 in the following. From (23) and (26) we have
because of (44). Let us denote
Then Vjk(t) will be the solution of
With the initial condition (49), the solution of (47) is Vjk = 0
from the semi-group theory. So we have the following theorem.
Theorem 2.The system of equations (6) have at most one
solution satisfying the initial conditions (7) and (8).
