Abstract:

The problem of the free vibrations of a rectangular elastic plate, either clamped or simply supported, with a central circular hole has been investigated by a least-squares point-matching method. The results are given in the form of curves relating the natural frequency of the plate to the hole size for a variety of Poissons ratios. The curves do not behave monotonically, and the hole size at which the frequency is a minimum is seen to be dependent not only on the boundary conditions but also on Poissons ratio. A two-fold mechanism of strain relief and mass reduction is proposed to explain these results as well as the results of previouw studies on the vibrations of plates with discontinuities. Author
