The problem of minimization of weight is considered in the case of annular sandwich plates, statically indeterminate with respect to the support reactions and resting on an incompressible liquid; the plates are subjected to axi-symmetric loads, uniformly distributed over the annular region. Under various boundary conditions the fields of deflection rates and limit moments are calculated which correspond to the opitmum design; moreover, the reactions along the interior contour and relations between the loads and the pressure exerted by the liquid on the plate are derived. Numerical results are illustrated by graphs.
