ACCEPTED MANUSCRIPT of the function are of the same order. So the solution method of complex valued displacement functions, as used for the solution of the generalized plate equation in context of the classical laminate theory (for example in [10]), is not applicable here. In this study, an inï¬nite plate with a ï¬nite circular cut-out is selected as a mathematical equivalent model for the notched plate and the following restrictions as for the loading conditions are introduced. The notched plate should be loaded at the inï¬nite outer boundary by constant edge forces per unit length Nx , Ny , Nxy (Fig. 1(a)) and constant edge moments per unit length Mx , My , Mxy (Fig. 1(b)) in such a way, that the static equilibrium conditions are fulï¬lled automatically when looking on the overall plate. At the edge of the notch, the plate can be loaded by a constant normal edge force per unit length Ni and a constant edge bending moment per unit length Mi (Fig. 1(c)).

Boundary conditions on cut-out and outer boundary In order to take into consideration the eï¬ect of the loads on the outer boundary on the stress concentration problem of an inï¬nite plate, the actual state of stress is decomposed using the superposition principle into three states of stress (Fig. 2) as follows I: a ï¬nite, unnotched plate with loads at the outer edge, II: an inï¬nite notched plate with loads at the edge of the notch, adapted in such a way that, with superposition of I and II, an overall unloaded 8
