In-plane vibration of cyclically symmetric ring structures is examined with emphasis on the comparison of instabilities estimated by complete and simplified models. The aim of this paper is to understand under what conditions and to what degree the simplified models can approach the complete model. Previous studies develop time-variant models and employ perturbation method by assuming weak support. This work casts the rotating-load problem into a nonrotating load problem. A complete model with time-invariant coefficients is developed in rotating-support-fixed frame, where the bending and extensional deformations are incorporated. It is then reduced into two simplified ones based on different deformation restrictions. Due to the time-invariant effect observed in the rotating-support-fixed frame, the eigenvalues are formulated directly by using classical vibration theory and compared based on a sample structure. The comparisons verify that the two types of models are comparable only for weak support. Furthermore, the simplified models cannot accurately predict all unstable behaviors in particular for strong support. The eigenvalues are different even in comparable regions. For verification purpose, the time-invariant models are transformed into time-variant ones in the inertial frame, based on which instabilities are estimated by using Floquét theory. Consistence between the time-invariant and -variant models verifies the comparisons.
