Vibrations of skew plates immersed in water have been studied in the present work. Two skew prism fluid elements have been developed for the above study. As there is no information available on them, a few experiments have been conducted to measure the frequencies of vibration of these plates immersed in water. The results of both the theoretical and experimental investigations have been compared and found to be agreeing reasonably well. The general findings of these plates regarding their aspect ratios, thickness ratios and boundary conditions are discussed. In addition, the influence of skew angles on the vibration of skew plates have been investigated. It has been noticed that the effect of added mass is found to decrease with the increase of skew angle. © 1985.
