Abstract

This paper treats the bending of a uniformly loaded circular plate with mixed conditions on the boundary. Two cases are considered: 1) clamped—simply supported and 2) simply supported—free. Deflections and bending moments are calculated at the center of the plate and compared to results obtained by other investigators. Excellent agreement is found except when the clamped segment or support segment is short compared with the circumference. An auxiliary function, which permits the stress intensity factor to be determined, is also tabulated for each case.
