7.8. Circular plate with central concentrated load F and edges freely supported

The fundamental equation and hence the slope and deflection expressions will be as for the previous section (§7.7), i.e.

2 itD Fr2 8ttD

CI r


constants Ci and C3 being zero as before.

As for the uniformly loaded plate with freely supported edges, the constant C1 is determined from the knowledge that the bending moment Mr is zero at the free support, i.e. at r — R,

Therefore from eqn. (7.16),

0 0
