This paper is concerned with vibration and transient response problems of viscoelastic plates with curved boundaries of arbitrary shape subjected to general dynamic loads. The results for free and forced vibration problems are given in generalized forms for arbitrary-shaped viscoelastic plates. As examples of this problem, the free vibration of a circular clamped viscoelastic plate with an eccentric hole and the dynamic response of a circular solid viscoelastic plate subjected to an eccentric annular impact load are discussed. Numerical calculations are carried out for both the problem, and experimental results are also obtained as an additional check of this study.
