The code demonstrates the application of the principle of virtual work for calculating the steady state transverse displacement of a rectangular clamped thin plate. It was based on a letter written by J. P. Arenas for the editor of Journal of Sound and Vibration (2003).
The GUI is designed to be simple. It contains some basic parameters, which can be easily modified, and a single pushbutton for executing the calculation. After brief processing time, the plate response is shown in a figure. Information on non-dimension frequency parameter is provided as well.
Similar to my previous codes, I am using a very plain way in writing the code. Comments are given here and there for making the code easy to understand. I will try to provide more explanation on the equations and the code later.
Anyhow, my simple wish is that someone could find the code useful :)
