Forced and natural vibrations of a rectangular pre-stressed orthotropic composite plate containing two neighboring cylindrical cavities whose cross sections are rectangular with rounded-off corners are investigated numerically. It is assumed that all the end surfaces of the rectangular pre-stressed composite plate are simply supported and subjected to a uniformly distributed normal time-harmonic force on the upper face plane. The considered problem is formulated within the Three-Dimensional Linearized Theory of Elastic Waves in Initially Stressed Bodies (TDLTEWISB). The influence of mechanical and geometrical parameters as well as the initial stresses and the effect of cylindrical cavities on the dynamical characteristics of the rectangular orthotropic composite plate are analyzed and discussed.
