Abstract: Based on the small deflection plate theory, the equilibrium differential equation of isotropic thin slab with a temperature variation perpendicular to surface is deduced, by assuming a deflection function which satisfies the equilibrium differential equation and using the Levy method. An analytical solution is obtained for the case with four simply supported edges, which provides a basis for subsequent engineering calculations.
