3.5.2 Configuration in the VTD Class

A solution in the VTD class is obtained for the case of a null rigidity at the edge, D{a} = 0. From (3.53), this is provided whenever A2 = -A\/a2. Setting the coefficient A1 = D0, we obtain A2 = -D0/a2 and

D r2

D0 a2

After substitution in Eq. (3.55), the bending moment and and the net shearing force are respectively

At the edge, this provides Mr{a, O} = 0; the net shearing force distribution Vr is fully generated from applying to the edge

This simple configuration corresponds to an external ring-force in cos 2O applied per length unit to a simply supported edge summarized as follows (Lemaitre [14]):

^ A cycloid-like shaped mirror provides an Astm 3 deformation mode z = A22 r2 cos 2 O, if a ring-force Vr = V0cos2O is applied along its simply supported edge. This force distribution is self-reacting. The thickness t = T22 t0 and characterizing features are
