Keywords: defect | finite element analysis | plate | natural frequency | vibration mode shapes

This paper series presents an analysis regarding the dynamics of thin rectangular plates, embedded on all edges, in order to highlight the effect of geometrical discontinuities upon the natural frequencies. In this paper the first thirty natural frequencies were obtained for a plate without defect and the same plate with six different types of defect. The defect was placed in the centre of the plate; one dimension (the width) was increased successively. The results in terms of frequencies and mode shapes are finally presented.
