Vibration Analysis of Plate Structures

Pp. 31-53 (23)

Meilan Liu and Cho W. S. To


This chapter is concerned with the vibration analysis of linear plates employing the mixed formulation based three-node flat triangular shell elements in Chapter 2. Square, circular and skew plates are studied. In particular, circular plates with various aspect ratios and boundary conditions are included. As a special example to reveal the features of the membrane component of the shell elements a plane stress problem is presented.
