Abstract: In this paper, we apply the two-dimensional least-square-based finite difference (LSFD) method for solving free vibration problems of isotropic, thin, arbitrarily shaped plates with simply supported and clamped edges. Using the chain rule, we show how the fourth-order derivatives of the plate governing equation can be discretized in two or three steps as well as how the boundary conditions can be implemented directly into the governing equation. By analyzing vibrating plates of various shapes and comparing the solutions obtained against existing results, we clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of LSFD as a mesh-free method for computing vibration frequencies of generally shaped plates accurately. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
