The Green quasifunction method (GQM) is applied to solve the bending problem of clamped orthotropic thin plates with trapezoidal boundary shape on Winkler foundation. Firstly the governing differential equation of the problem is reduced to the boundary value problem of the biharmonic operator, and then it is reduced to the Fredholm integral equation of the second kind by Green’s formula. A Green quasifunction is established by using the fundamental solution and the boundary equation of the problem. This function satisfies the homogeneous boundary condition of the problem. The singularity of the kernel of the integral equation is overcome by choosing a suitable form of the normalized boundary equation. The comparison with ANSYS finite element solution shows good agreement. The proposed method is a novel and effective mathematical one.
