Polar elasticity theory is employed to derive exact solution for the pure bending problem of the transversely isotropic plate. It is then compared to the conventional elasticity solution and the corresponding composite plate solution. The material parameters of the polar model are chosen so that it represents the effective behaviour of the composite plate. The influence of the additional material constant related to the fibre size effect and affecting bending stiffness of the plate is illustrated.
