Equations for the determination of the frequencies of flexural vibration and corresponding modal shapes for cylindrically aeolotropic circular plates are presented. A considerable analysis has been made of the case of symmetric vibrations and results are tabulated. The theory is exemplified by an analysis of the vibration of a circular plate with circular stiffeners for which the effective elastic compliances had been determined in a previous investigation. Nodal patterns and corresponding frequencies were experimentally determined for the first five symmetric modes and the first four asymmetric modes of a simply supported stiffened plate. Comparison between the theoretical and experimental results for the first three symmetric modes is provided. Finally, some discussion is given for the important problem of approximating plates with attached stiffeners by equivalent homogeneous uniformly thick aeolotropic plates.
