The vibration of an elliptic ring clamped along two confocal ellipses was studied by McLachlan some time ago. Due to complexities in the computations of Mathieu functions, numerical results were not available. In this Note the fundamental frequencies of clamped ring membranes with a fixed area enclosed between two confocal ellipses of various eccentricities are computed. Results are presented in a tabulated form.
