As the panel modal density is increased, the resonance frequency of the (0,0,1) enclosure-controlled mode jumps from lower than the resonance frequency of the (0,0,1) rigid walls enclosure mode to higher than it when it passes by the point of maximum energy transfer.
Mode jumps and the sequence of jumps are clearly shown in the load-deflection curves, as seen in Figure 9.
