Abstract The bending of a three-layer elastic circular plate with step-variable thickness is considered. To describe kinematics of asymmetrical in thickness core pack, the broken line hypotheses are accepted. In thin bearing layers, Kirchhoff’s hypotheses are valid. In a relatively thick filler incompressible in thickness, Timoshenko’s hypothesis on the straightness and incompressibility of the deformed normal is fulfilled. The formulation of the corresponding boundary value problem is presented. Equilibrium equations are obtained by the variational Lagrange method. The solution of the boundary value problem is reduced to finding three required functions in each section, deflection, shear and radial displacement of the median plane of the filler. An inhomogeneous system of ordinary linear differential equations is obtained for these functions. The boundary conditions correspond to rigid pinching of the plate contour. A parametric analysis of the obtained solution is carried out.
