A sine series solution previously used for the study of the flexural vibration of rectangular isotropic plates is extended to apply to the free vibration of orthotropic plates. Application to three particular plates with different support conditions is given and numerical results are presented for two of these examples. Where possible, the numerical results presented are compared with values given by other writers.
