This paper contains an exact solution for stresses which are produced in an infinite plate with two holes of different sizes by interference fits. It is assumed that the plate and the interference-fitted ring have the same elastic properties and are perfectly bonded to each other. Numerical examples of the solution are worked out and the interference fits are found useful for reducing the high-stress concentration effects which are induced in an infinite plate with two holes by external forces.
