This paper presents exact solutions for free vibration of rectangular cross-ply laminated plates with at least one pair of opposite edges simply supported using refined kinematic theories of variable order. Exact natural frequencies are obtained using an efficient and unified formulation where the solving set of second-order differential equations of motion and related boundary conditions are expressed at layer level in terms of so-called fundamental nuclei having invariant properties with respect to the order of the plate theory. The nuclei are then appropriately expanded according to the number of layers and the order of the theory and the resulting equations are transformed into a first-order model whose solution is obtained by using the state space concept. In this way, the mathematical effort needed to derive analytical solutions is highly reduced. Both higher-order equivalent single-layer and layer-wise theories are considered in this study. Comparisons with other exact solutions are presented and useful benchmark frequency results for symmetric and un-symmetric cross-ply laminates are provided.
