Natural Frequencies of a Flat Rectangular Plate, Finite Element Method

platefea

These Matlab scripts calculate the natural frequencies and normal modes of a flat rectangular plate via the finite element method: rectangular_plate_fea.zip

rectangular_plate_fea.m is the main script.

The remaining scripts are supporting function.

Rectangular elements are used for the numerical model, but the plotting elements are triangular.

Here is a reference paper: FEA_plate_bending.pdf

This other page has a Matlab GUI script for calculating the fundamental frequency of a plate using formulas from classical methods.
