The problem of a circular plate, with a central hole, elastically constrained against rotation and deflection, acted upon by a transverse linear temperature gradient or a general axisymmetrical loading condition is considered in this paper. With the aid of presented graphs and simple algebraic equations, it is a relatively simple matter to construct the desired deflection and stress pattern for any combination of elastic constraints and load distribution.
