The complete stress distribution around a circular hole, located in the center of a square plate, has been determined photoelastically for the case of the plate loaded uniformly on two opposite sides. The study was conducted parametrically for a range of the ratio D/W of the diameter of the hole to the side of the square from 0.20 to 0.83. The results obtained permit the determination of the stresses for any biaxial condition and verify a previous solution obtained for the case of the pressurized hole. The experimental procedure is briefly described.
