This paper considers a circular buoyant elastic plate of homogeneous stiffness floating in shallow water. The edge of the plate is free of shear forces and bending moments. The plate deflection is excited by a monochromatic ambient surface wave. A closed form solution of the corresponding linearized problem is obtained. Numerical examples, illustrating the analytic results for various physical parameters of the problem are presented.
