The problem of assessing the effects of Pasternak foundation on the response to several moving masses of isotropic rectangular plates for all variants of classical end supports was studied in Oni [1]. Closed form solution technique involved the use of the generalized two-dimensional integral
transform and modified asymptotic method of Struble. This paper establishes the convergence of the analytical solutions of two illustrative examples of this class of problems and the robustness of the solution technique.
