This work shows that the theoretical stress concentration factor depends on the length of the member in addition to the established other standard geometric parameters. In particular, the in-plane theoretical stress concentration factors for short rectangular plates with centered circular holes subjected to uniform tension are determined using the finite element method. It is shown that these factors can reach significantly larger values than the corresponding existing ones for long plates. The value of the transition length between long and short plates is computed and reported as well. Two new concepts are defined, short members and transition length.
