This calculator computes the displacement of a free circular plate under a uniformly distributed load with a simply-supported ring at r=r0.

Inputs
Loading:   Uniform load p =  
 Geometry: 
 Support radius r0 =    
 Outer radius r1 =    
 Thickness h =    
 Material
 Young's modulus E =    
 Poisson's ratio nu =  
Output: 
 Unit of displacement w =  

 
 
Displacement

wmax = w(r = r1) = 0.104558295612 mm ~ 0.105 mm
