Abstract

Dynamic stability of polar orthotropic thick circular plates subjected to a periodic uniform radial stress is studied by the finite element method. An annular element based on the Mindlin plate theory is employed. The regions of dynamic instability for both clamped and simply supported edges are determined by Bolotin's method. The effects of various parameters on the dynamic stability are investigated.
