A computational model presented here is to study the vibration of visco-elastic isotropic square plate with thermal effect on two direction varying thickness parabolically. Equation of frequency is derived by using Rayleigh-Ritz technique with a two-term deflection function. All the calculation made for the first two modes of vibration, for various values of thermal gradients and taper constant.
