Abstract : An exact solution of the three-dimensional equations of elasticity was found for the thickness-twist modes of vibration of a rotated-Y-cut quartz plate with a pair of parallel, free edges. The solution has a simple form: made possible by relaxing the condition that the edge-planes be perpendicular to the main faces of the plate. For the AT-cut, the edges are off perpendicular by about five degrees. (Author)
