In a companion paper, it has already been treated and derived an integral equation of the Fredholm-type. This equation governs the bending of uniformly loaded square plate in which the plate is supported by corner-point supports together with partial simple supports placed at the middle edges. Therefore, the current paper is aimed to further derive and propose the analytical closed-form expressions involving the plate deformations and stress resultants; namely, deflection, slope, bending moment, shear force in element, and corner force of the plate.
