Q2. A clamped edge circular plate, of radius 'a' = 1.5m, is subjected to a uniform load of intensity po. The defection surface is in the form w=c(x²+y²-a²)². The function f(x,y)= x²+y²-a²satisfies the boundary conditions. v=0.30, and E = 210 GPa. The origin of the coordinates is the center of circle. The mathematical expression representing the deflection in terms of plate geometry,flexural rigidity and applied load. • The amount of maximum deflection. The deflection at a radial distance of 0.5m from plate center.
