A photoelastic solution of the distribution of stresses around a centrally located elliptical hole in a plate of finite width subjected to uniform axial loading is presented in this paper. Stress distributions at the boundaries are given for a wide range of the parameters, and stress-concentration factors have been computed for the points of maximum tensile and of maximum compressive stress. Comparisons are made with available theoretical solutions. Some appreciable discrepancies are pointed out.
