General nondimensional iso-deflection and iso-bending moment curves for the elastic response of orthotropic rectangular plates under lateral pressure pulse are presented. Similarities of loads and plate properties are employed to develop the curves, which represent the peak response for various combinations of orthotropy, density, geometry and loading. The presented curves are valid within the elastic small deflection theory of plates, and their usefulness and limitations are discussed in the paper.
