The asymmetric dynamic stability of thick annular plates subjected to a periodic uniform radial loading along the outer edge is studied by the finite element method. An annular element based on a high-order plate theory is used. The regions of dynamic instability are determined by Bolotin's method. The effects of various parameters on the dynamic stability are investigated.
