Using a biorthogonality relation, it is shown how solutions for the flexure of a long flat curved plate whose curved boundaries are clamped can be obtained for physically meaningful combinations of the boundary functions prescribed on the straight edge. It is shown how closed solutions can be obtained when deflection and moment are prescribed on the straight edge. Further, when deflection and slope or moment and shear force are prescribed on the straight edge, it is shown how the problems can be reduced to a system of linear algebraic equations in infinitely many unknowns. Some numerical results are presented when zero deflection and constant bending moment are prescribed on the straight edge of a long plate whose curved boundaries are clamped.
