Through Cracked Holes - Bi-Axial Loading Conditions

One of the items of interest at our recent European Workshop was the solution for through cracks at holes under bi-axial loading. We have recently done some modeling work to look at this case, and have some results for a few basic cases.

 

Plate Width: 4 inches
Plate Height: 4 inches
Diameter: 0.25 inches
 

The following load cases were considered:
Load Case 1: σ1 = 1, σ2 = 0
Load Case 2: σ1 = 0, σ2 = 1
Load Case 3: σ1 = 1, σ2 = 1
Load Case 4: σ1 = 1, σ2 = 0.5
