Abstract:

A closed form analytical solution is developed for stresses and strains on a Mohr Coulomb medium surrounding a circular hole and loaded axisymmetrically in plane strain. This solution extends multiple plastic zone solutions developed by others to allow arbitrary dilatancy. Step by step procedures for applying the solution and numerical examples are presented.
