In this paper, the frequency analysis of linear elastic rectangular plates of varying thickness is one direction is investigated using the finite strip method. The thickness variation of the finite strip is limited to a one-way polynomial of any degree in its transverse direction. A plate of variable thickness is, therefore, approximated by a series of strips oriented in a manner such that their longitudinal edges are perpendicular to the direction in which the plate thickness varies.
