Cummings, Benjamin E. (1957) Supersonic flutter of a plate containing many bays in the spanwise direction. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-07082004-143419
A special problem of panel flutter is considered by the method of Galerkin. The solution to the supersonic, non-steady potential equation is obtained by the approach of Garrick and Rubinow. Plate equations of motion are obtained by use of the Lagrange equations. Numerical solutions to the flutter determinant are presented for two cases.
