ELASTIC DISTRIBUTION OF STRESS AROUND HOLE IN REGION SUBJECTED TO PURE SHEAR. THE CONTOUR LINES INDICATE THE CURVES OF CONSTANT MAXIMUM SHEAR.

It is perhaps worth mentioning here that such a stress distribution around a hole might be obtained in the web of an I-beam, subjected to a severe transverse shearing load. The central part of the web can then be considered as stressed in pure shear, and if the amount of shear is large enough, the material should yield in the vicinity of a hole in the web among two perpendicular planes.
