An integral equation formulation for the finite deflection analysis of axisymmetric circular plates with variable thickness is presented, based on the Karman equations and by means of the Green identity. A plate analog method is suggested to simplify the solving procedure. A number of numerical examples show that the approach developed in this paper is effective.
