The paper examines the hydroelastic instability of an infinitely long plate subjected to shearing load with two different boundary conditions, one side of which is exposed to an incompressible inviscid flow, and the other side supported on an elastic foundation. The analysis is based on the small deflection plate theory and the classical linearized potential flow theory. The Galerkin method and Fourier transforms are used. It is found that the effects of the shearing load and the elastic foundation on the divergence velocity can be illustrated by a single curve for both clamped and simply supported cases.
