The problem of finding stress resultants in a thin elastic plate containing two circular holes of equal size, under plain bending about the axes of symmetry, has been discussed on the basis of the Poisson-Kirchhoff theory. A method of perturbation is adopted for the determination of parametric coefficients involved in the solution. The factors of stress concentration are calculated and compared with the results available.
