The boundary-point-least-squares technique is applied to the axisymmetric three-dimensional elasticity problem of a hollow circular cylinder normally intersecting with a perforated flat plate. The geometry of the intersection is partitioned into three parts. Boundary conditions on the middle part and continuity conditions between adjacent parts are satisfied using the numerical boundary-point-least-squares technique while the governing elasticity equations and all other boundary conditions are satisfied exactly. Sample theoretical results are presented for the case of axisymmetric radial tension loading on the plate. The results compare favorably with previously published experimental data and provide supplementary data to theoretical results obtained using existing shell theory solutions.
