Holes or cutouts present in many practical structures. Cutouts are needed to reduce the weight of the system or provide access to other parts of the structure. These cutouts create highly localized stresses or stress concentration at the vicinity of the cutout. The understanding of the effects of cutouts on stress concentration of such structures is very important in design. In this study, a simple analytical method for stress analysis of perforated plates is presented. The Lekhnitiskii’s solution for circular and elliptical cutout is expanded to triangular cutout shape using complex variable mapping. The solution is capable of considering large variety of cutouts with different shapes, bluntness, fiber angle, load angle and rotation angle. The results obtained clearly demonstrate the effect of these parameters on maximum stresses in perforated plates subjected to uni-axial tensile load.
