An infinite thin plate with an elliptical hole reinforced by a confocal elliptical ring is subjected to loads in the plane. A solution to the generalized plane-stress problem is obtained using the complex variable techniques of Muskhelishvili. The result is presented in a form well suited to evaluation by digital computers. Specialization to a circular hole with a negligibly thin reinforcement is shown to be in agreement with results obtained bv other authors.
