Large deflections and large amplitude vibrations of axisymmetric circular plates Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper is concerned with conventional and mixed finite element analysis of large deflection bending and free vibration of axisymmetric circular plates including shear deformation. Conventional and mixed finite element formulations are presented. Numerical results are included for isotropic as well as orthotropic, circular and annular plates under various edge conditions and loadings. Copyright © 1981 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd
