The problem of an isotropic annular plate clamped along one edge and free at the other and subjected to a concentrated load is solved by a series approximation. The continuity conditions of deflection, slope, shear and radial moments at the radius of load application are satisfied. Variations of deflection coefficient, radial moment coefficients and shear coefficients with radius and angle are presented.
