The problem of a large isotropic plate with a circular hole or rigid circular inclusion is considered here. The plate experiences transverse shear deformation and is subjected to an arbitrary bending field. By using Reissner’s plate theory, a general solution, in terms of Poisson’s ratio ν, a geometric ratio, and bending moment ratio B, is obtained to satisfy both the boundary conditions along the edge and at great distances from the edge. The stress couple concentration factors are calculated and compared with classical plate theory, three-dimensional elasticity theory, higher-order plate theory, and an experimental result.
