Abstract： Equations for the large deflection of thin plate established by Th. von Karman has been well known for many years. But so far there have been only a few iproblems studied with numerical certainty. S. Way was the first to apply these equations to solve the problem of a clamped plate under uniform pressure by the method of power series. After this, S. Levy found the solution of the simply supported rectangular plate under uniform load by the method of double trigonometric series. Both methods are too labourious to be applicable to other more important cases. Lately, Chien Wei-zang treated Way's problem again by means of the perturbation method and obtained excellent results. By the method as given by Chien Wei-zang, Yeh Kai-yuan worked out the problem of circular plate with a central hole under central concentrated load.In this paper, more results are given for various circular plates under various edge conditions. These include uniformly loaded circular plate under various edge conditions (section 2) and central concentrated loaded circular plate under various edge conditions (section 3). Such edge conditions are: (1) simply supported, (2) simply hinged, (3) rigidly clamped, (4) clamped but free to slip, (5) edge clamped but with possible slipping in horizontal direction, (6) edge simply supported but elastically fastened, and (7) edge clamped in elastic wall.All these results are presented in such a form that direct application in design problem is possible. In particular cases, under edge conditions (1) to (4), as σ=0.3, design formulae and curves for central deflection, radial tensile stress and radial bending stress are presented.
