A unified approach to study the forced linear and geometrically nonlinear elastic vibrations of fiber-reinforced laminated composite plates subjected to uniform load on the entire plate as well as on a localized area is presented in this paper. To accommodate different shapes of the plate, the analytical procedure has two parts. The first part deals with the geometry which is interpolated by relatively low-order polynomials. In the second part, the displacement based p-type method is briefly presented where the displacement fields are defined by significantly higher-order polynomials than those used for the geometry. Simply supported square, rhombic, and annular circular sector plates are modeled. The equation of motion is obtained by the Hamilton’s principle and solved by beta-m method along with the Newton–Raphson iterative scheme. Numerical procedure presented herein is validated successfully by comparing present results with the previously published data, convergence study, and fast Fourier transforms of the linear and nonlinear transient responses. The geometric nonlinearity is seen to cause stiffening of the plates and in turn significantly lowers the values of displacements and stresses. Also as expected, the frequencies are increased for the nonlinear cases.
