I have two questions about using "several THE" is a single sentence.
Q1) Which one of THE following sentences are correct (probably none of them)?
a) THE value of maximum deflection based on THE classical theory is 1.
b) THE value of THE maximum deflection based on THE classical theory is 1.
c) THE length-to-thickness as well as THE length-to-width are important parameters.
d) THE length-to-thickness as well as length-to-width are important parameters.
Q2) My general question is:
If we have several THE in a single sentence, is it possible to omit one or some of them? If any, which one?

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
As a general rule, we can repeat the several times in a sentence if necessary, and if they are necessary, omitting them will affect the sentence negatively.
If the article is necessary, it is necessary. No matter how many times "the" is used in a sentence.
