An attempt is made to verify second order orthotropic plate theory using a Plexiglas model loaded laterally and in the plane of the plate. The design and construction of the model, loading system, support system and instrumentation are discussed in detail. The experiments did not verify second order orthotropic plate theory. The main reason was the inability of the boundary condition members to apply the designed boundary conditions to the plate. Further attempts to verify the theory are possible with the same apparatus if boundary modifications are made.
