Abstract:

The load carrying capacity of plates is an area of great interest to the structural engineer. At times operational requirements andor the desire to reduce the weight of the structure requires the introduction of cut-outs. It is expected that the size, shape and location of the cut-out will have an effect on the load carrying capacity of the plates. Unless this effect can be determined reliably the strength to weight ratio of the plate with cut-outs could not be optimized. The technique to be used in this paper to determine the stability of plates with cut-outs makes use of the mode shapes and frequencies of the plates without the cut-outs, which is considered the reference structure, having the same boundary conditions as the plates with the cut-outs.
