Kirsch Infinite Plate Problem

Application ID: 261


This model describes a static stress analysis to obtain the stress distribution in the vicinity of a small hole in an infinite plate. The model is a classic benchmark and is described in Mechanics of Material, by D. Roylance. The stress level is then compared with the theoretical values.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
