The problem of the free flexural (or bending) vibrations of a rectangular, composite base plate or panel stiffened by a bonded, noncentral stiffening plate strip is considered. The lower composite base plate and the upper stiffening plate strip are assumed as dissimilar Mindlin Plates connected by a very thin and deformable adhesive layer. In the formulation, the entire composite system is considered to have simply supported edges in one direction while the other two edges may have arbitrary boundary conditions. The set of governing partial differential equations is reduced to a “special form” of a system of the first order ordinary differential equations. Then, they are integrated by the “Modified Transfer Matrix Method (with Interpolation Polynomials).” The mode shapes and the natural frequencies of the composite system are investigated and presented in detail for several boundary conditions. It was also found that the “hardness” and the “softness” of the in-between adhesive layer have significant effects on the mode shapes and the natural frequencies.
