Expressions are derived which relate the maximum stresses encountered in simply supported beams and rectangular plates and in clamped circular plates vibrating at resonance to modal displacements and modal loadings. Computation of modal loadings from time-wise harmonic or random pressures is discussed. It is shown that the resonant maximum stress may be reasonably approximated by a simple formula suitable for conservative design calculations for all types of beams and plates.
