Taking into consideration an own weight when analyzing massive solids is rather
important problem of the theory of elasticity and structural mechanics. Thick layered plates
are often used as elements of various constructions. The method of initial functions (MIF) is
very suitable for their analyzing. In this article the MIF algorithm for taking into account the
stress from own weight is extended to analyze layered plates.
Keywords: thick layered plate; method of initial functions.
