In this paper we study transient propagating bending waves. We use the equations of orthotropic plate dynamics, derived by Chow about 25 years ago, where both transverse shear and rotary inertia are included. These equations are extended to include anisotropic plates and an integral representation formula for the bending waves is derived. Chow’s model is compared with the classical Kirchoff’s model. We also investigate the influence of the rotary inertia. Comparisons with experimental data are made as well.
