Circular Thin Plates in Bending

  • Johan Blaauwendraad
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 171)


In this chapter we elaborate on the theory of thin plates for circular plates resisting an axisymmetric load. We can do that in a compact way by using the derivation of the bi-harmonic equation for rectangular coordinates in Chapter 4 and its transformation to polar coordinates in Chapter 6.
