Abstract

The behavior under uniaxial tension of a boron-epoxy composite plate with a circular hole was studied by means of experimental stress analysis and finite-element methods. Strain distributions as a function of applied nominal stress were obtained along the axes of symmetry and around the boundary of the hole. Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio were computed from the far-field strains. Tensile and compressive strain concentrations were computed for the linear range of strain response. Experimental results were compared with those obtained by homogeneous anisotropic elasticity and by finite-element analysis.
