The focus of this study is to understand traveling wave generation and propagation in reduced order 2D plate models. A plate with all clamped (C-C-C-C) boundary conditions was selected to be the medium through which the wave propagation occurs. The plate is excited at multiple locations by point forces which generates controlled oscillations resulting in net traveling waves. A finite element model is developed and the traveling wave response is simulated. The numerical model is complex with a large number of degrees-of-freedom making a parametric study computationally intensive. In order to overcome this computational burden, balanced truncation based and interpolation-based model reduction techniques are employed to reduce the total number of degrees-of-freedom. The capabilities of these reduction techniques to capture the steady-state frequency-domain characteristics and the steady-state time-domain response have been compared in this paper.
