Abstract : A thin rectangular strip containing a large hole of fairly general shape and subjected to uniaxial tension is analyzed. An approximate, elastic-beam theory, due to Koiter, is used to find estimates of stresses, strains and displacements near the minimum sections. It is assumed that the strip deflections may be large near the minimum sections but not elsewhere. Approximations suitable to the cases of smallAND LARGE LOADS ARE PRESENTED, AND DETAILED RESULTS ARE GIVEN FOR THE CIRCULAR HOLE. (Author)
