Document Type: Journal Paper


The equations for bending of an infinite plate resting on a circular support due to a hotspot are derived. Bending due to any arbitrary temperature distribution on faces of the plate can be obtained by integrating these equations. Finite circular plates with clamped or simply supported edges can be treated as special cases.
