. INTRODUCTION

In this paper, we will consider the orthotropic plane problems. The general solution of two-dimensional orthotropic media expressed with two harmonic displacement functions is given at first by use of the governing equations. Then, based on the general solution in the case of distinct eigenvalues, a series of beam problems, including cantilever beam under uniform loads, cantilever beam with axial load and bending moment at the free end, cantilever beam under the first, second, third and fourth power of

Analytical solutions for various problems are obtained by the superposition principle.
