a finite element analysis of a uniform cylindrical shell with a large circular cut-out is presented. In this analysis three hole sizes are considered, respectively with radius a A = 62.87 mm; a B = 126.49 mm; a C = 196.01 mm. For the purpose of the research, the computer aided engineering software Abaqus (Dassault Systemes, FR) is adopted in order to simulate material behaviour under compressive and torsional loading. The investigation is carried out with respect to the elastic behaviour of the material.
