In this paper an examination of methods for vibration analysis of moderately thick rectangular plates has been presented. First, the state-of-the art in thick plate vibration theories and analysis methods is described and it is followed with basic equations of the original Mindlin theory, which represents a starting point for the development of all other mathematical models. Then, the problem of analytical solving of equilibrium equations is considered based on the modified Mindlin theory of thick plate vibrations, which has been published in the literature recently. Further, energy methods that can be applied to arbitrary boundary conditions are discussed and outline of the assumed mode method is presented. Finally, in the context of numerical methods a new quadrilateral finite element, based on the above mentioned advanced thick plate theory, is included. It should be emphasized that it doesn't suffers of shear locking problem associated with finite elements, due to natural relation among bending and shear polynomials, and moreover, it gives very accurate results. Application of the presented methods is illustrated by several numerical examples which include natural vibration analyses of rectangular plates with various thicknesses and different combinations of boundary conditions (simply supported, clamped, free and elastically restrained). Comparisons of natural frequencies and mode shapes with results available in the relevant literature and with those obtained by the commercial finite element software are also provided.
