A study of modal characteristics and the control mechanism of finite periodic and irregular ribbed plates
Lin, Tian Ran (2008) A study of modal characteristics and the control mechanism of finite periodic and irregular ribbed plates. The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 123(2), pp. 729-737.
An analytical solution is presented in this paper to investigate the control mechanism and modal characteristics of finite periodic and irregular ribbed plates. Peak responses of a finite periodic ribbed plate were examined where they were grouped into two sets of propagation zones according to the coupling mechanism at beam/plate interfaces. Details of modal characteristics in pass bands of the periodic ribbed plate were elucidated and the control mechanism was discussed. Modes in each pass band that are governed by shear force couplings were characterized by one of the beam flexural modes whose modal responses could be represented approximately by those of the corresponding orthotropic plate modes. Modes in the second set of pass bands were found to retain the resonance frequencies of the corresponding modes of the un-ribbed base plate. Higher order orthotropic plate modes were also identified, which could not be grouped into any pass bands defined by the classical periodic theory. The control mechanism leading to vibration confinement in disordered and irregular ribbed plates was also discussed. It was found that beam spacing irregularity attributes to localization of the group of modes associated with flexural wave couplings but not the group of modes associated with moment couplings.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
