This paper is to demonstrate that axisymmetric plate damping will suppress unbounded response of a stationary, elastic, circular plate excited by a rotating slider. Use of the method of multiple scales shows that the axisymmetric plate damping will suppress parametric resonances excited by slider stiffness and slider inertia at supercritical speed. In addition, the plate damping will increase the onset speed above which slider damping destabilizes the elastic circular plate. Moreover, numerical examples show that the plate damping could stabilize the plate/slider system at discrete rotation speeds above the onset speed.
