A review and generalization of the displacement-based two-dimensional plate theories is presented. The classical and shear deformation single–layer theories up to the third-order are presented in a single theory through tracers. The layer–wise laminate theory developed by the author is reviewed. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the accuracy of the layer–wise theory by comparison with the analytical solution of the 3–D elasticity theory.
