This calculator computes the displacement of an annulus plate, clamped on the inner edge, under a ring load.

Inputs
Loading: 
  Ring Loading Pr  
 Loading Radius rL =    
 Geometry: 
 Outer Radius ro =    
 Inner Radius ri =    
 Thickness h =    
 Material
 Young's modulus E =    
 Poisson's ratio nu =  
Output: 
 Unit of displacement w =  
 Unit of stress =  

 
 
Displacement

wmax = w(r = ro) = 0.207125815105 mm ~ 0.207 mm

Stress

The maximum bending moment occurs at the fixed edge of the plate, r = ri.

Mmax

The maximum stress occurs at the fixed edge of the plate near surface, r = ri, z = ±h/2.

max = 2.25 MPa ~ 2.25 MPa
