The elasticity solutions of plates have been researched and used widely. The elasticity solutions of plane are applicable to structures only under the premise that an object is very thin. However, the limitation of the thickness has not been made clearly. Then, it is necessary to clarify it in order to use two-dimensional elasticity solutions properly. In this study, we analyzed three flat plate models containing a round hole of the same curvature radius by the finite element method, and compared the three-dimensional elasticity solutions with the two-dimensional elasticity solutions. Moreover the application limit of two-dimensional elasticity solutions was given.
