Abstract

Various plates and plate like structures are often subjected to moving loads, such as aerodynamic automobiles. In this paper automobile highway was modelled as an elastic orthotropic rectangular plate. The effects of damping and drag force were put into consideration. The fourth order differential equation governing such plates resting on Pasternak foundation was expressed as first order differential equation. The equation was changed to its algebraic form using finite difference algorithm, then solved with the aid of MATLAB in conjunction with a computer program. Simple supported conditions were used. The effects of damping drag force, foundation and other physical phenomena were investigated and the results obtained are consistent with the ones existing in literature.
