This paper investigates the buckling and vibration of heavy standing plates with rotational elastic edge constraints. The discrete singular convolution (DSC) method as a powerful numerical technique is applied to derive the governing eigenvalue equation. Convergence and comparison studies are conducted to authenticate the correctness and accuracy of the DSC approach. Accurate first-known vibration solutions for elastically restrained vertical plates subjecting to body forces/self-weight are presented. Some contour mode shapes for the vibration of elastically restrained vertical plates are also depicted for illustration.
