The method for obtaining the exact natural frequencies, normal modes, orthogonality relation and reponse due to arbitrary loading of undamped beam-oscillator systems developed earlier by the authors is extended to viscously damped plate-oscillator systems. The normal modes are expressed in terms of Green's function for the vibrating plate. Damping is present in both the plate and oscillators. Modal analysis allows the determination of a closed form expression for the system response to arbitrary loading.
