Abstract The problem of free vibration of arbitrary quadrilateral unsymmetrically laminated plates subject to arbitrary boundary conditions is considered. The Ritz procedures supplemented by the simple polynomial shape functions are employed to derive the governing eigenvalue equation. The displacements are approximated by a set of polynomials which consist of a basic boundary function that impose the various boundary constraints. A first-order shear deformable plate theory is employed to account for the effects of the transverse shear deformation. The numerical accuracy of the solution is verified by studying the convergence characteristics of the vibration frequencies and also by comparison with existing results. The new results of this study include the sensitivity of the vibration responses to variations in the lamination, boundary constraints and thickness effects, and also their interactions. These numerical values are presented for a typical graphite/epoxy material, in tabular and graphical forms.
