An analytical investigation into the influence of disk flexibility on the transverse bending natural frequencies and critical speeds of a rotating shaft-disk system is presented. The geometric model considered consists of a flexible continuous shaft carrying a flexible continuous circular plate. The partial differential equations governing the system motion and the associated exact solution form are developed. Numerical solutions are presented covering a wide range of non-dimensional parameters and general conclusions are drawn.
