10.3: Vibrating Plates Simulation

  • Page ID
    25922
  • The Vibrating Plates simulation examines vibrational modes on a rectangular surface. The surface is fixed at the edges so the nodal lines occur in different places compared to a rectangle with free edges. The model assumes that the surface is very thin and very flexible; real surfaces which are stiffer will have slightly different nodal lines and anti-nodes.
