Abstract : The effect of initial stresses, owing to the transverse loading, on the changes in the thickness-shear resonance frequencies in rectangular, doubly-rotated crystal plates has been studied. The plate is clamped along one of its edges and is subject to a transverse load uniformly distributed along the opposite, parallel edge. The remaining pair of edges are free of traction. A system of one-dimensional equations is derived from Mindlin's two-dimensional first-order equations for crystal plates. The governing equations for the first six displacement components symmetric to the x1x3 plane of the plate are employed to obtain the approximate two-dimensional fields of displacement, strain and stress.
