Results of finite-element method modeling of guitar top-plates are presented and compared with Chladni vibration patterns of real top plates. Use of the finite-element model for the interactive investigation of the effects of bracing pattern, plate thickness, and material property variations is outlined, with reference to the application of such models as effective design tools.
