This paper presents a new mathematical development, which allows to harmonize the technical calculation theories for moderately thick plates (first order shear deformation theory), in order to obtain a unique set of general governing equations, resulting in a great simplification in the theoretical development, while providing equally precise solutions as the classical theories. The obtained equations represent a major advantage for university level teaching since they simplify the theoretical development.
