Appendix 2: Close-Form Representation of Tangential Stress Distribution at Circular and Elliptical Holes
This appendix presents a close-form solution to determine the stress distribution around a hole of any shape or size in a strip of any material of any width. It also compares the close-form equation to classical solutions and the results of finite element analysis, demonstrating near perfect matches in each case.
