Perforated plates with a uniform triangular penetration pattern subjected to alternating loads are analyzed. The cases of equibiaxial and shear loading are considered and the finite element method is used to obtain elastic-plastic solutions for various ligament efficiencies. The plastic strain concentrations for alternating loads are compared to those for monotonic loading. Useful methods of obtaining plastic strain concentration factors for alternating loads using the results for monotonic loading are given.
