Abstract : The natural frequencies of rectangular isotropic plates under various boundary conditions including clamped, free and simply supported edges were found experimentally. Excitation was provided by an electronic shaker table. The results are tabulated and sand patterns showing the nodal lines are presented. This work was performed to provide experimental results for the chordwise bending theory. Results compare well with experiment. (Author)
