A potentially useful method of reinforcing plates containing holes is by bonding annular discs of cylindrically wound fibre-reinforced material to the lateral surfaces of the plate, as illustrated in Figure 1. Reinforcement of this kind offers considerable potential weight-saving advantages in aircraft and other structures.
