## Abstract

In the present thick plate vibration theory, governing equations of force-displacement relations and equilibrium of forces are reduced to the system of three partial differential equations of motion with total deflection, which consists of bending and shear contribution, and angles of rotation as the basic unknown functions. The system is starting one for the application of any analytical or numerical method. Most of the analytical methods deal with those three equations, some of them with two (total and bending deflection), and recently a solution based on one equation related to total deflection has been proposed. In this paper, a system of three equations is reduced to one equation with bending deflection acting as a potential function. Method of separation of variables is applied and analytical solution of differential equation is obtained in closed form. Any combination of boundary conditions can be considered. However, the exact solution of boundary value problem is achieved for a plate with two opposite simply supported edges, while for mixed boundary conditions, an approximate solution is derived. Numerical results of illustrative examples are compared with those known in the literature, and very good agreement is achieved.
