OUTER BOUNDARY AND AN ECCENTRIC CIRCULAR INNER BOUNDARY FOR VARIOUS EDGE CONDITIONS K. NAGAYA Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Yamagata Universit?,, Yonezawa, Japan (Received 20 March 1978, and in revisedform 7 September 1978)
In this paper, vibration problems of a circular viscoelastic plate having an eccentric circular inner edge are investigated. The frequency equations in complex forms for various edge conditions are obtained. Numerical calculations are carried out for both elastic and viscoelastic plates, and the nondimensional natural frequencies and the logarithmic decrements are given for a number of cases.
1. INTRODUCTION
A circular plate having an eccentric inner edge is an important element of machines and structures, such plates being widely used in many branches of engineering. The dynamic behaviour of this type of plate therefore needs to be understood, as well as that of a plate with a concentric inner edge. These problems however have not been thoroughly discussed although a few theoretical [l, 21 and experimental [3] results for elastic plates have been reported. In these studies the effect of the eccentricity of the inner edge on the natural frequencies of the plate has been discussed in references [2] and [3]. Maruyama and Ichinomiya [3] investigated an elastic plate with fixed circular outside and free circular inside edges in their experiments, and they concluded that the effect of the eccentricity can be neglected from an engineering point of view. However, in the author’s previous paper [2] concerning an elastic plate with free outside and fixed inside edges it was reported that the effect of the eccentricity is large and cannot be neglected in general. These discrepancies are due to the differences between the boundary conditions. In this paper the vibrations of a circular viscoelastic plate with an eccentric circular inner edge are discussed for various boundary conditions. An analytical method for solving the problems has been previously given by the author [2]. In that study the terms having small influence on the natural frequencies were neglected in treating the outer boundary conditions. In this paper the transformed boundary conditions are given in exact forms, and the influence of neglecting terms is investigated. The exact solution is obtained by applying the Laplace transform to the equation of motion for the viscoelastic plate. The boundary conditions along the outer edge of the plate are satisfied by means of the Fourier expansion method.
2. ANALYSIS A viscoelastic plate with a circular outer boundary and an eccentric circular inner boundary of an eccentricity d is shown in Figure 1, in which the origin 0 of Cartesian coordinates x and y is chosen in the center of the plate, and the z axis is normal to the plate surface. The polar coordinates r, 8 and r’, 8’ are taken as shown in the figure, and the radii of the

outer edge, r, and the inner edge, r’, are denoted by R and a, respectively. If one denotes the displacement of the plate in the z direction by w, the equation of motion for the viscoelastic plate, in the coordinates I’ and 8’, is [4]

[(2PQ’ + P’Q)Q/(PQ’ + 2QP')] x (h3/12P) (denoted by D(t) later) corresponds to the flexural rigidity 9 = Eh3/12( 1  v2) in the elastic plate, where E is the Young’s modulus and v is the Poisson’s ratio of the elastic plate.

To identify the frequency parameter 1, the flexural rigidity 9 of an elastic plate which has the same value as D(t), but in which the effects of viscous damping are omitted, is introduced in this analysis. The solution of the transformed viscoelastic plate equation is obtained, by using the transformed flexural rigidity D(s), as W = (l/S’) i j=l

The boundary conditions along the outer edge are expressed by using equations (6) with is expressed in terms of the coordinates r’ and 6’, and hence it is convenient to treat the outer boundary conditions when the derivatives in the equations of the bending slope, bending moment and shearing force are transformed in terms of r’ and 0’. The transformed expressions are r’ replaced by r and a by R. The displacement

The expressions for j = 2 have the same forms as equations (16), but cos no’is replaced by sin nB' and also sin ne’isreplaced by  cos nfl'.In the author’s previous report [2], the bending moment and the shearing force were obtained by neglecting :he terms atI’/& and M/k%. If these terms are neglected and with B(s) replaced by ~3 in equations (15) and (16), the bending moment and the shearing force for the elastic plate reduce to the author’s previous results. The outer boundary conditions cannot be satisfied directly, and hence Fourier expansion is applied to the expressions for the outer boundary conditions. The boundary conditions therefore are expressed, by using the symmetry, as

for the simply supported edge. The integration in equations (19), (20) and (21) cannot be performed analytically ,and hence the integration is performed numerically. The frequency equation is obtained from equations (18) for the symmetric modes with respect to the xaxis by taking j = 1, and when the terms n and m are truncated to N + 1, one obtains
(22)
The equation for the antisymmetric modes with respect to the xaxis can also be obtained bytakingj = 2,n,m = 1,2,3 ,..., N. In this case the following substitutions should be made in equations (16): cos n0’ + sin ntl’and sin nB’+  cos ntJ’. The natural frequencies therefore can be evaluated from equation (22) for various combinations of the outer and the inner boundary conditions. In vibration problems of viscoelastic plates, since the roots of the frequency equation have complex forms in the complex splane, ofone puts s = io, and A* = ~(phR~/@“~, which is the root of the frequency equation, then o represents the natural frequency in a complex form and 1* represents the nondimensional complex frequency. Therefore the logarithmic decrement 6 of the first mode can be given by 6 = 2nB,Q2,, where 52, represents the real part and Sz,the imaginary part of the frequency A* of the first mode. The imaginary parts Q, of the frequencies vanish, of course, in the case of elastic plates.
3. NUMERICAL
RESULTS
In this numerical calculation, a threeelement standard viscoelastic solid as shown in Figure 2 is considered. The coefficients p[, ql, pi and q; are readily obtained in the same way as in references [6,7]. If the Poisson’s ratio is assumed to be a constant [8,9], the flexural rigidity of the viscoelastic plate is given by D(s) =:
9G(l + t&h3 g,[iA*(3s + t&i) + 3 + 9(1 + iA*t;) 12(1  v2) [s(3t, + t,g,) + 3 + 911 Or i =

The modulus shown in equation (23) is found from the three dimensionaltheory of elasticity, and there exists a little discrepancy between the result of this analysis for c1 = 0 and that of the thin elastic plate theory. However if one puts [ = 1, the results for the elastic plate can be evaluated directly by using this analysis. The convergence of the Fourier series is good, and n and m are taken up to 6 in this numerical calculation. Tables l7 show the relation between the fundamental nondimensional natural frequency a*[ = $7 = (phR4~2/9)1’4] of symmetric modes of the elastic plate and the nondimensional eccentricity d/R with c,, = 0, c1 = 0 and v = 0.3, for various combinations of TABLE

the outer and the inner boundary conditions. Figure 3 shows the frequency versus d/R for an elastic plate with clamped inside and free outside edges with a/R = 0.3. In :he figure, s,  S, show the symmetric vibrations for first  third modes, and A,, A, show the antisymmetric modes. The solid line is the result obtained from this analysis and the dashed line is that from the approximate analysis [2]. It can be seen that the discrepancy between the present and the previous approximate results is small, and hence the approximation in the previous paper is valid in practical use. The effects of the eccentricity on the natural frequencies are small for small values of a/R (a/R = 0.1) in the case of a clamped circular plate with a circular hole (Table 2) as was found by Maruyama and Ichinomiya [3]. However, as the ratio a/R increases (a/R = O5),the frequency varies significantly, and the effects of the eccentricity therefore cannot be neglected for large values of a/R. Especially when the inner edge is a clamped or a supported boundary, these effects cannot be neglected even if the plate

has a small eccentric inner boundary. Therefore it can be concluded that the effects of the eccentricity on the frequency increases as the rigidity of the inner edge increases, and in general, those effects cannot be neglected. Figure 4 shows the logarithmic decrement 6 versus the viscous parameter E with a/R = @3 (E, + E,)/E, = l01, c0 = 0 and v = 0.33, for a clamped circular viscoelastic plate with an eccentric clamped inside edge. It is observed that the location of the maximum value of the logarithmic decrement moves with d/R although the maximum values are almost the same for various values of d/R.

4. CONCLUSIONS
In this paper, a method for solving vibration problems of a viscoelastic plate having a circular outer boundary and an eccentric circular inner boundary has been presented. The frequency equation of the plate has been obtained, and numerical calculations have been carried out for the plate with various boundary conditions. It is concluded that the effects of the eccentricity of the inner edge on the natural frequency increase as the rigidity of the inner boundary becomes large, and in general, these effects cannot be neglected.
