Stress intensity magnification factors for an elliptical crack embedded in a finite thickness plate subjected to tensile and bending loading are estimated by judicious use of analytical results obtained previously. These analytical results involve the stress intensity magnification factors for an embedded elliptical crack approaching the free surface of a semi-infinite solid and pressurized by a constant or by a linearly varying pressure. The resultant stress intensity magnification factors for the elliptical crack in a plate are presented in graphical forms for various crack aspect ratios, eccentricity, and proximity factors.
