The governing equations of the transverse vibration of a spinning disk of varying thickness are derived and solved using numerical integration techniques. A clamped-free rotating annular disk driven at the outer edge with sinusoidally varying force is considered for analysis. Representative graphs showing the stress distribution and the frequency dependence of the force transmissibility of the disk are presented. Results obtained in this paper are compared as applicable to results of previous investigations.
