Exact solutions for the free in-plane vibrations of rectangular plates

All classical boundary conditions including two distinct types of simple support boundary conditions are formulated by using the Rayleigh quotient variational principle for rectangular plates undergoing inplane free vibrations. The direct separation of variables is employed to obtain the exact solutions for all possible cases. It is shown that the exact solutions of natural frequencies and mode shapes can be obtained when at least two opposite plate edges have either type of the simply-supported conditions, and some of the exact solutions were not available before.
