Hi everybody,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm looking for a way to determine the maximum moment of a uniformly loaded circular plate (diameter = 10") with eccentric circular hole (diameter = 4"). The plate is clamped at outer edge and free at inner edge. The ultimate objectif is to determine the minimum thickness of the circular plate in order to withstand the pressure, that's why I take the small deflection assumption.

I've been looking for existing studies but all I get are the two classic cases with solid circular plate or annular circular plate.

The major difficulty in this problem is that by making the hole eccentric, we loose the axisymetry which may simplify a lot calculations

If anyone is interested in this topic or has any more information , I'd be glad to to discuss more about it.
