Abstract

Elastic interactions between holes of diverse eccentricities, as well as between holes and cracks, are analyzed. We examine various physical effects produced by mteracmons and the impact of hole eccentricities on these effects. Mixtures of holes of diverse eccentricities and sizes are of particular interest. Patterns of stress concentrations in such mixtures imply certain microfracturing patterns in materials with multiple defects. ^ 1 Introduction In real materials pores often have strongly non-circular shapes Moreover mixtures of holes of diver
