An approximate method is suggested for evaluating the strength of plates containing circular holes when subjected to linearly varying edge displacements. The peak load is evaluated as the one causing the first yield at the edges. The proposed method of solution is validated by a large number of tests on scaled-down models carried out on a specially fabricated rig. Methods of obtaining design charts for practical plates with varying sizes of diameters and locations of openings are proposed.
