How to calculate the deflection in ring, fixed at center, with a radial point force acting at some point(let say at theta=0) ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have derived complete set of equations. Now how to apply boundary conditions ?

to get a complete solution of 4th order equation, I need 4 B.C's, but here displacements are not specified at any point. Imposing periodicity I can get 2 more conditions

u(0)=u(2*pi)

w(0)=w(2*pi)

where u and w are radial and tangential displacements respectively

and how to apply force boundary condition in this case?

Can someone please help?
