Stresses near a hole in a tube under torsion.

This thesis evolved in the mechanical engineering laboratory at the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, Upon the sight of a finite plate containing a hole which was set up in a tension experiment, the idea was entertained that if the sides of the plate were bent around in a circular arc and welded together, a hollow shaft or tube containing a hole would result, - more important and intriguing (or so it seemed at the time) was its imagined relation to an infinite plane. When a check of the literature brought no discussion on this particular problem to light, the project of determining experimentally just how the stresses behaved in this tube under a torque load was adopted. It was carried out between March and May, 1953, in the laboratory mentioned above.
