Abstract: 

This paper deals with the analysis of plate bending by the finite element method. Since vast findings have been achieved so far, advancing research in this area is very difficult. Nevertheless, three triangular elements for analyzing plate bending will be formulated. The patch test for one and some elements for the suggested elements will be preformed. Moreover, a variety of problems will be solved by the authors' program. In addition to these, the responses of the suggested three elements with the other investigators' results, and also accurate answers will be compared. The findings of this article reveal that the new elements have the ability to reach the precise solution. It should be added that one of three proposed elements has the best convergence rate.
