CHAPTER I
INTRODUCTION
11 General For many years, it has been known that the' introduction of a geometrical discontinuity into a stressed elastic solid niay greatly alter the stress distribution. This is true for a plate under uniaxial tension also, because due to the introduction of a very small hole in the center of the plate, a higp stress concentration will occur at the edge of the hole. Since the nominal area of the crosssection has not
been reduced appreciably, this indicates that some relation other than the applied force divided by the net area of the crosssection must be used in order to accurately determine the stress distribution in the
vicinity of the hole. Thus, in this, investigation the equatiorts of plane elasticity are solved by employing an Airy stress function. Most of the work done in calculating stress concentration factors
has been done using an infinite strip while the related problem of a finite plate with a large circular hole has received much less attention.

12 Historical Notes
G.
Kirsch (1) first presented the solut1on for an infinite plate
with a small circular hole under the action of all round tension.
Muskhelishvili (2),
by using complex variables,
presents the solution
for a perforated infinite plate under various loading conditions.
His
results included problems involving displacement boundary conditions
as well as those involving stress boundary conditions.
The solution for an infinite strip under uniaxial tension was . investigated by Howland and Stevenson (3) but their results were
confined to hole diameters less than half the plate width.
Koiter (4)
used elementary beam theory to solve the case of a hole diameter
almost equal to the width of the plate.
Combining Howlandis and
Koiter's results yields the curve labeled {3=oo in· Fig.
2.
Jeffery (5)
introduced bipolar coordinates in 1921 leading to solutions of plates
with more than one hole or eccentrically located holes in strips.
Of the various photoelastic tests conducted in this area (69),
Wahl (10) conducted very precise tests in which the stress concentra
tion factor is determined for a complete range of hole sizes.
For
hole sizes less than half the plate width,
his results agree very well
with the mathematical results of Howland.
Wahl's results indicate
also, that for large holes having a diameter nearly equal to the width of the bar the stress concentration factor is not far from 2 in cases
where the lateral displacements of the minimum section of the bar are
small compared to the thickness of the section.
results of Koiter.
This agrees with the
The stress distribution around the edge of a circular hole in a
3
square plate was solved by an approximate method by Hengst (11) btti
the accuracy of his solution decreases with increased hole size,
due
to numerical difficulties and Hengst restricts his anaylsis to hole
diameters of less than onehalf the plate dimension.
Little and
Schlack (12) obtained the solution for a square plate under uniaxial
tension for a complete range of hole sizes.
Their results are plotted
in Fig.
2 as
/3= 1. O.
Thus,
from Fig.
2,
it is observed that for a hole
diameter greater than fourtenths the plate width the stress concentra
tion factor for a square plate varies considerably from that for an
infinite plate.
The purpose of this investigation is to fill in the gap
between the two curves shown in Fig.
2 by using an approach very
similar to that taken by Little and Schlack.
Thus,
the problem in
this investigation .is that of obtaining a solution for a rectangular
perforated plate under uniaxial tension
Numerical results will be
obtained for hole diameters of fourtenths the plate width and larger.

Then with the
above restriction upon n,
it is necessary to work only with the portion
of the plate that lies in the first quadrant.

CHAPTER III
RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS
For all numerical calculations,
the number of terms and the
points specified along the outer boundary were picked in an attempt
to optimize satisfaction of the outer boundary stresses.
The number
of terms required varied from nineteen to twentynine and the number
of points specified varied from thirtytwo to forty.
In most cases,
the
boundary stresses converged to within 3'16 of the desired stress,
but
for large hole sizes with f3 greater than L 3,
the best results obtained
were within approximately 10%.
Thus,
the results for this case are
not exactly correct but do give a good approximation.
Approximated
results are shown in the figures as dotted lines.
The stress concentration factors at the edge of the hole are
plotted in Fig.
3.
The curve labeled {3= L O represents the results as
obtained by Little and Schlack; the curve labeled {3=00 represents
the combination of Rowland's and Koiter's results.
From the trend
of the intermediate curves it is observed that a plate under uniaxial
tension with length to width ratio of approximately 1. 5 can be treated
essentially as an infinite plate.
It is believed that this is due to the
increased stiffness against bending as f3 increases.
In the investigation by Little and Schlack for a square plate,
it
is shown that a thick ring analogy is appropriate when considering
large holes,
because the maximum stresses occur at the minimum
19
20
sections and are primarily caused by flexure as can be seen from the
distribution of stress across the minimum section at 8=90°.
For hole
sizes of y=O. 4 and 0. 5, the stress concentration factor due to the
presence of the hole is more pronounced,
but for larger hole sizes
the axial and bending effects are more prominent,
making the ring
solution more applicable.
However,
an increase in length will
increase the in plane bending stiffness due to the additional amount
of material at B=0°.
Thus,
the bending stress wo:uld be decreased,
and it is this bending effect that tends to increase the stress concentra
tion factor for large holes in square plates.
Thus,
an increase in
plate length should obviously decrease the stress concentration factor
for large hole, sizes.
This is the trend shown in Fig.
3 and
it is
shown that this decrease is quite rapid.
The stress concentration factors at the outer boundary,
r=b,
are plotted in Fig.
4,
From these curves it is noted that the stress
may be as much as five times the nominal stress and of opposite sign
for a square plate with a large hole.
Thus,
it may be necessary
when designing to check the stress concentration at the outer boundary
as well as at the edge of the hole.
From these curves, the transition
from a square plate to an infinitely long plate is again shown.
For
{3=1. 5 and y=O. 8,
the stress concentration factor approaches zero.
Koiter predicts a zero stress at the outer boundary for an infinitely
long plate with a very large hole,
and it is again verified that when
the length to width ratio of the plate approaches approximately 1. 5,
the plate may be treated as one infinite in length.
