The large amplitude transverse vibration of plates is analyzed by using the method of constant deflection contour lines and the well-known Berger method. By letting the plate stiffness tend to zero, the case of the large amplitude vibration of membranes is treated in a simple and uniform manner. Several illustrative examples are discussed, all details of which are explained by graphs.
