A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR DETERMINING THE VIBRATION CHARACTERISTICS OF PLATE STRUCTURES

A simplified method is presented for determining the natural frequencies of the simple isotropic plate elements to the more complex cross stiffened or orthotropic plates, for various types of boundary conditions. In addition, formulas for determining the effect of water on the vibration characteristics of these plates are given. The application of these various techniques and procedures for design are illustrated.
