An analysis of a plate, simply supported on three edges and elastically restrained on the fourth, excited by a concentrated load with a harmonic time history, is used to study the peak resonant response of the plate for several configurations and a wide range of edge restraint. Classical thin plate theory is employed with a complex elastic modulus to account for energy dissipation. An approximate method, based on a single term normal mode solution, is developed for calculating the limits of the peak resonant response for arbitrary edge restraint.
