Investigation of Stress Distribution on Thin Metal Sheet With Holes


Kitsuda, Kaname (1935) Investigation of Stress Distribution on Thin Metal Sheet With Holes. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/921K-MD80.


This paper presents the investigation of the ultimate strength of a plate under shearing stresses when the plate contains lightening holes. The optimum arrangement of holes and the most desirable size of hole has also been investigated. Stress-strain curves have been made which show the points at which the plates reach the buckling point, the elastic limit, and the point of permanent deformation.
