The axisymmetrical steady-state response of an internally damped, annular double-plate system interconnected by several springs uniformly distributed along concentric circles to a sinusoidally varying force is determined by the transfer matrix technique. Once the transfer matrix of an annular plate has been determined analytically, the response of the system is obtained by the product of the transfer matrices of each plate and the point matrices at each connecting circle. By the application of the method, the driving-point impedance, transfer impedance, and force transmissibility are calculated numerically for a free-clamped system and a simply supported system.
