The free vibration of clamped elliptical plate, when temperature and stress fields are coupled, is analyzed based on the fundamental equations of nonlinear thermo-elastic vibrations. A system of nonlinear differential equations of time is obtained with utilization of Galerkin’s method. The vibration states are compared with respect to different coefficients. The effects of thermo-elastic coupling on the amplitude and frequency are also presented.
