The equations of motion based on two-dimensional theory of elasticity are applied under the plane strain assumption of prestressed and gravitated magneto electro elastic plate of polygonal cross-sections composed of non homogeneous isotropic material. The frequency equations are obtained by satisfying the boundary conditions along the irregular surface of the polygonal plate using Fourier expansion collocation method. The complex roots of the frequency equations are obtained by secant method. The numerical computations are carried out for triangular, square, pentagon and hexagon cross sectional plates. Graphical representation is given for the various physical variables via gravity and different edge boundaries and its characteristics are discussed. This result can be applied for optimum design of concrete plates with polygonal cross sections.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_670324_08ded61c2f75b1c6424a0dcf29442059.pdf
