This paper studies the free vibration characteristics of rectangular plates with partially clamped edges around the corners using the finite element method. ANSYS Parametric Design Language (APDL) was utilized to produce the finite element (FE) models and to run the analysis. The FE models were used to obtain the plate first natural frequency and mode shape. A comprehensive investigation of the effect of the plate geometric parameters and different boundary condition properties on the natural frequency and mode shapes is presented. The results showed that the vibration characteristics of the structure are greatly dependent on the plate size and the constraint properties.
