The stability and vibration of two-dimensional ferroelastic plates in a uniform, static oblique magnetic field are investigated. It is shown that for either clamped or simply supported boundary conditions, the plate remains either undeformed or unstable. Buckling instability is found to occur only when the field is near normal to the plate. The buckling magnetic field and frequency field dispersion relation is found for a simply supported circular plate. At near-normal field incidence the lowest mode plate frequency decreases with magnetic field. Otherwise an increase in field strength is found to increase the natural frequency. The propagation of transverse waves down an infinite simply supported panel in a magnetic field is also studied.
