Abstract : This report presents a survey of the literature concerning dynamics of plate-type structural elements of either composite material or sandwich construction. Papers from mid-1979 through early 1982 are reviewed, as are a few 1978 and early 1979 references unavoidably omitted in 1979 (Technical Report No. 5); there is a total of 167 references. Particular attention is given to experimental research and to linear and nonlinear analysis. Configurations include rectangularly orthotropic, cylindrically orthotropic, and anisotropic plates; laminated; plates; and thick and sandwich plates. Free and forced vibration, panel flutter, and impact are considered. (Author)
