analysis of a square plate with
circular holes subjected to uniform pressure

The problem under consideration involves the computation of
stresses and displacements of a square plate subjected to uniform
In the first instance a square section with a central
circular hole is considered using generalised plane strain
The pressure is applied to the surface of a circular
hole located at the centre of the section.
The problem is then
generalized to that of a square section with nine holes subjected
to internal pressure.
Results involving stresses and
displacements are obtained for both cases using a typical Boundary
Element software package such as BEASY.
These results are
validated by an accuracy check using Lame thick cylinder theory at
