The modal wavenumber of rectangular, simply supported, isotropic thin plates was theoretically shown to be related to the zeros in the wavenumber spectrum and not to the peaks, resulting in an error between the actual modal wavenumber and location of the wavenumber spectrum peak for low mode orders. This theoretical proof is confirmed by experimental results reported in this letter.
