A boundary integral method is newly applied to a plate structure, where the structure is divided to some plates and each plate is dealed with a thin plate under in-plane loading and bending loading. Although each plate is like a plate-bending element of FEM, it should not be divided into small elements any more by using BFM and the calculation is more effective than that by FEM. This method is a approximate method, (because it is based on Kirchhoff's hypothesis). Therefore the stress state of the bonded part of the plates is not exactly satisfied. However adequate solution can be obtained with very little input data.
