In the present study, the geometrically nonlinear dynamic response of bimodulus annular and circular plates is obtained. The governing equations of the problem are formulated using the energy method and are solved by using annular finite elements spacewise. The integration in the time domain is accomplished by the Wilson θ method. Numerical work has been done for different hole sizes under various edge conditions and loadings.
