# OS-V: 0360 Simply-Supported Thin Square Plate Harmonic Forced Vibration Response

Test 13R OptiStruct is used to investigate the Peak Displacement in z-direction and extreme fiber bending stress at undamped Natural Frequency (at the center of the plate).

## Benchmark Model

The 2nd order and 1st order quad elements are used to model the square plate of thickness
0.05m. The z-rotation and x, y translations are fixed for all the nodes, z-translation is
fixed along all four edges, x-rotation is fixed along the edge x=0 and x=10 and y-rotation
is fixed along the edge y=0 and y=10. A steady-state random forcing with uniform power
spectral density (of force) PSD= (100 N/m^{2})^{2}/Hz is induced in the
z-direction. For modal analysis solution, a damping ratio of 0.02 is applied in all 16 modes
and for direct solution, Rayleigh damping factor α1=0.299 and α2=1.339×10^{-3} are
given.
