Bending of simply supported circular plates of constant radial bending stress subjected to uniformly distributed loading is investigated by solving a nonlinear integrodifferential equation. Boundary conditions are satisfied by joining the central portion of the plates of variable thickness to an annular rim along the boundary with uniform thickness. Usual assumptions for bending of thin plates of small deflections are assumed valid.
