Abstract : Two-dimensional equations of couple-stress theory for an isotropic, elastic medium are derived. The components of stress and couplestress are then expressed in terms of the Airy stress function and another stress function which accounts for the couple stresses. After a transformation to polar coordinates, the stress distributions are found for a circular hole in various two-dimensional fields of stress. (Author)
