Abstract : An analysis for the free vibrations of arbitrarily shaped isotropic, orthotropic,or symmetrically laminated plates is computerized. A minimum of elasticrelations are derived which lead to the finite element analysis procedures thatwere programmed. Details of the finite element analysis procedures are omitted.(P.S.-PL)
