A method is presented for analyzing the free transverse vibration and elastic stability of circular plates under nonuniform distribution of the inplane stresses. A general solution procedure is developed, and a frequency equation is derived for the case when a pair of loads are locally distributed in the plane along the edge. Numerical results are presented for natural frequencies and buckling loads of the plates, and the effect of the partial inplane loading is discussed. A limiting case for a concentrated inplane load is also considered.
