The present paper deals with the influence of small geometric imperfections on the vibration frequencies of rectangular, simply supported, angle ply, thin composite plates subjected to inplane uniaxial or biaxial compressive preload. Depending on the amount of preload, the frequencies of laminated plates with different imperfection shapes may be significantly higher than those for perfect plates, especially in a certain range of fiber angles. Interaction curves between frequency and applied preload are plotted for various fiber angles and imperfection amplitudes for both the uniaxial and equal biaxial loading cases.
