This paper is concerned with the bending of sectorial and annular sectorial thick plates with the radial edges simply supported. The Reissner plate theory has been adopted to cater for the effect of transverse shear deformation. In solving the aforementioned plate problems, we derive the relationships between the bending solutions of the Reissner plate theory and the classical thin plate theory. The relationships enable one to deduce the bending solutions of the Reissner plate theory using the corresponding classical thin plate results, which can be determined readily or are already available in the literature. Several sectorial plate problems are solved, and the Reissner plate results are checked against existing numerical results as well as results obtained using other higher-order plate theories.
