Paper Abstract

The problem of determining the density distribution of a circularly symmetric elastic membrane, fixed on the edge, from its frequencies of free vibration, is examined. An asymptotic analysis implies that a density function that is a small perturbation from a homogeneous membrane is determined, up to a finite number of parameters, by two infinite spectra of appropriate angular orders. An algorithm for reconstructing the density from the spectra is presented. The results are illustrated by numerical simulations.
