The influence of shear deformation and rotatory inertia on dynamic response of elastic rectangular plates subject to in-plane loads increasing with time is discussed using Mindlin’s plate theory. The qualitative effect of those factors on transverse displacements is estimated. It is shown that this effect becomes essential only if the plate is thick and the number of half-waves along the plate axes in the deformation mode is large.
