This paper describes a method for calculating stresses and deflections in perforated plates with a triangular penetration pattern. The method is based partly on theory and partly on experiment. Average ligament stresses are obtained from purely theoretical considerations but effective elastic constants and peak stresses are derived from strain measurements and photoelastic tests. Acceptable limits for pressure stresses and thermal stresses in heat exchanger tube sheets are also proposed.
