Abstract: Fiber reinforced composites are finding increasing applications in the aerospace, marine, transportation, electrical, chemical, construction and consumer goods industries. In some of these applications the composites are subjected to dynamic loads. The composite structures may sometimes be provided with different types of holes for the purpose of assembling the components and units inside the structure, for passing the cables and control mechanisms for inspection, maintenance and attachment to other units. Scope of this project is to find out the best shape of the holes. The ANSYS software is used for analyzing the plates.
