Stress Analysis of Holes in Thick Plates
A review of the Stress Concentration Factors (SCFs) obtained from normal and oblique holes in thick flat plates loaded in uniaxial tension has been conducted. The review focuses on values from the plate surface and discusses the ramifications of making a plane stress assumption.
