General expressions for the deflection of plates whose planform is a sector of a circular ring are given for cases in which the straight edges have arbitrary but given deflection and bending moment. The solutions are given for all combinations of physically important edge conditions on the two circular edges. Sectors of circular plates are included as special cases. Solutions are given for a general load which is a continuous function of r, and a sectionally continuous function of θ, where r and θ are the usual polar co-ordinates with the pole at the center of the ring. Several specific examples are given.
