With the use of J2 deformation theory, the stress-concentration factor at a circular hole in an infinite sheet of strain-hardening material subjected to equal biaxial tension at infinity is found for a variety of representative materials. The analysis exploits a transformation which permits the calculation of the stress-concentration factor without determining the stress distribution in the sheet. Subsequent calculations reveal that, for a monotonically increasing applied stress, the stress history at all points in the sheet is nearly radial.
