The basic equations of deflection, slope, and moments for a thin, flat, circular plate subjected to a uniform load on a concentric circle were derived for four generalized cases. From these generalized cases, six simplified cases were deduced. The four generalized cases have the uniform load acting on a concentric circle of the plate between the inner and outer edges, with the following boundary conditions: (a) Outer edge supported and fixed, inner edge fixed; (b) outer edge simply supported, inner edge free; (c) outer edge simply supported, inner edge fixed; and (d) outer edge supported and fixed, inner edge free.
