Article Title: Buckling of Fiber-reinforced Annular Disks Subjected to a Concentrated Tangential Edge Load
by V. Soamidas

Circular and annular disks are one of the most commonly used shapes of components in machinery and hence the behavior of these is of utmost interest. Consequently, we find that circular disks have been analyzed extensively. Yet some aspects of their buckling behavior have not been addressed. The aim of the present work is to analyze polar and rectangular orthotropic annular disks subjected to a concentrated tangential load acting on the outer edge. The effect of variation in dimensions, elastic properties, point of load application and number of layers with different fiber orientations is considered. Non-dimensionalized results are presented in the form of graphs and an attempt is made to analyze the observed behavior
Keywords: annular disks, buckling, fiber reinforced, tangential load
