The authors use a recently developed procedure for lower bounds and the Rayleigh ‐ Ritz procedure for upper bounds to estimate frequencies of free vibration of thin rectangular cantilever plates. The applicability of the lower bound procedure is demonstrated, and calculations are given for a symmetry class of normal modes. The lower bounds seem to be the first rigorously obtained for this problem. The upper bounds are improvements over previously published rigorous results.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
