The stress concentrations due to an elliptical cutout in a shallow cylindrical shell are determined by means of a system of singular integral equations, solved numerically. Three loading conditions are considered: tension, torsion, and internal pressure. Results confirm those obtained by previous authors by other methods and extend the range of parameters over which results are available.
