Nondimensional frequency parameters for predicting the resonant frequencies of annular plates with fixed-free boundary conditions as the plate inner to outer radius ratio approaches unity have been investigated experimentally. Frequency parameters have been determined by using modal analysis to measure resonant frequencies for annular plates of varied materials, thicknesses, and with radius ratios of 0.5 to 0.9. The data are compared to two different analytical frequency predictions which have been presented as solutions for resonance of fixed-free annular plates based on classical elastic plate theory.
