The fundamental natural frequencies of axisymmetric circular and annular plates subjected to a combination of a pure bending stress and extensional stress in the plane of the plate are investigated. The thick plate ring element model which includes the effect of transverse shear deformation is created for axisymmetric free vibration problems. The obtained results of non-dimensional natural frequency coefficient compared with the closed form solutions for ordinary plates are shown to be very good. The effects of various parameters on the natural frequency and neutral surface locations are studied. The bimodulus properties are shown to have significant influence on the natural frequency.
