Abstract

The study was carried out through a theoretical formulation based on Taylor series and application of Ritz method. The paper presents a theoretical formulation based on Taylor series shape function and application of Ritz method. In this study, the free vibration of plate with three edges clamped and one freed was analysed using Taylor series shape function derived was substituted into the potential energy functional, which was minimized to obtain the fundamental natural frequency. This research focused on aspect ratio from 0.1 to 2.0 with 0.1 increments. The value obtained was compared previous research works, for example, for aspect ratio of 1, values of non dimensional natural frequency parameter,  is 24.6475
