The circumferential membrane and bending stresses at the edges of two identical elliptical holes in a circular cylindrical shell loaded by axial tension are computed by means of an integral equation method. Pairs of holes of which the center line is along a generator of the shell, along a directrix, or in a direction forming an angle of 45° with the generators are considered. For each of these hole configurations results are presented for a number of hole distances, hole sizes, and axis ratios.
