Nonlinear free vibration analysis of stiffened plates is presented in this paper. The von Karman theory is employed to model the rectangular stiffened steel plate. The first two symmetric and asymmetric modes are taken into consideration and the coupled nonlinear differential equations of system are derived using the Galerkin approach. The Variational Iteration Method (VIM) is considered as the solution technique and an integral iterative formulation is presented to obtain the nonlinear natural frequencies. Subsequently a parametric sensitivity study is carried out and the effect of different initial amplitudes on the frequency responses is investigated.
