Plates and shells are significant structural components in many engineering and industrial applications. In this study, the free vibration analysis of annular plates is investigated. To this aim, two different numerical methods including the differential quadrature and the discrete singular convolution methods are performedfor numerical simulations. Moreover, the Frequency values are obtained via these two methods and finally, the performance of these methods is investigated.
