(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Square panel , elliptical hole, uniform pressure p in x direction. calc stress at end of minor axis. pt A

L=40in p=10psi a=1in b=0.5 in t=0.2 in

2. Relevant equations

i know that stress at end will be max stress multiplied by stress conc. factor.

bt i dont know how to calc stress conc. factor for an elliptical hole

3. The attempt at a solution

Kt = stress x (1 + 2b/a)

is this correct?
