The steady-state response of a disk spinning near its critical speed and under space-fixed time-invariant load is analyzed by using von Karman’s nonlinear plate model. It is found that as the disk rotates beyond a modified critical speed there exist three steady-state deflections, among which only one is in the same direction as the applied load and is stable in the presence of space-fixed damping.
