The number of skew road bridges, particularly in the form of skew slabs, is increasing continuously as this type of bridges is most readily adapted to meet modern traffic requirement. Anisotropic skew plates are widely used in both single and continuous span bridges, in the form of nonorthogonally reinforced slabs or in the form of slabs stiffened with skew grid of beams. Whereas a great number of publications are available for isotropic and orthotropic skew slabs, a few literature are available on the problem of anisotropic skew slabs, which structural behaviour are different from that of orthotropic plates. In the present paper, the deflection, moment values decisive for dimensioning of anisotropic, single span, simply supported, skew plate resulting from uniform loading are presented. The study are compiled for a number of variations in the skew angle, flexural rigidity.
