The theoretical elastic stress distribution is presented for a thin flat plate of finite width which contains an elliptical hole. Various uniaxial and biaxial in-plane loads are applied to the plate and the results are compared with some existing experimental work. The results of a series of photoelastic tests which were arranged to examine the interaction between the stresses around two neighboring elliptical holes in flat plates are also presented.
