Based on the single-mode analysis, solutions to the governing equations developed in Part 1 of this paper are presented for various boundary conditions by use of Galerkin’s method and the Runge-Kutta numerical procedure. Excellent agreement is found between the present results and those available for nonlinear bending and large amplitude vibration of skew plates. The present results for moderately thick anisotropic skew plates indicate significant influences of the transverse shear deformation, orientation angle, skew angle, and side ratio on the large amplitude vibration behavior of certain fiber-reinforced composite skew plates.
