The equation of motion of a rotating disk, clamped at the inner radius and free at the outer radius, is solved by reducing the fourth-order equation of motion to a set of four first-order equations subject to arbitrary initial conditions. A modified Adams’ method is used to numerically integrate the system of differential equations. Results show that Lamb-Southwell’s approximate calculation of the frequency is justified.
