AbstractA two dimensional problem of electrostriction with a hole in the of Pascal's limacon is solvcd by complwx variable method. The distributions of stresses in an infinite dielection plate when the hole is filled up by air is subjected to an electric filed unifrom at infinity as well as it is acted on by appiled two dimensional tractions at infinity. The hoop stress is calculated on the boundary of the hole.
