The present work attempts to utilize the Constant Deflection Contour Method in the investigation of nonlinear vibration of thin elastic plates. An attempt has also been made to use conformal mapping technique for plates having uncommon or complex boundary. The usual boundary conditions have also been transformed accordingly. The equations for some iso-deflection curves of practical interest have been presented here for further investigations in conjunction with the present theory.
