    Abstract

    The natural frequencies and the node patterns for clamped and simply supported square plates of linearly variable thickness are determined experimentally using a pulsed-air vibrator. Finite-difference approximation is used to solve the vibrating plate problem and the resulting eigen-value problem is solved by the use of a digital computer. Eigen-values are the frequencies and the eigen-vectors represent the relative plate amplitudes. Experimental results are compared with finite-difference results and disagreements between the two, if any, are discussed in detail.13;
