This paper provides the designer with design formulations, tables and curve plots which may be employed in the design of uniformly loaded, ductile, elastic annular diaphragms clamped at the other edge and free at the inner edge. An exact solution of basic theoretical equations is employed along with the application of the well known and documented distortion energy theory of failure which results in a useful stress vs. strength relationship. An exact solution of the related deflections is also presented for concurrent stiffness (deflection) calculations.
