abstract:In this paper, a meshless method for solving the eigenfrequencies of clamped plates using the radial basis function (RBF) is proposed. The coefficients of influence matrices are easily determined by the two-point function. By employing the RBF in the imaginary-part fundamental solution, true eigensolutions instead of spurious one are obtained for plate vibration. In order to obtain the eigenvalues and boundary modes at the same time, singular value decomposition technique is utilized. Two examples, circular and rectangular clamped plates, are demonstrated to see the validity of the present method.
