Floors of modern buildings unsupported by intermediate columns present re-entrant corners; stresses at corners are theoretically infinite, but become finite in immediate neighborhood of corner; thus practical design stresses can be obtained by substituting for actual plate, circular sector simply supported in its circular boundary and built in on its straight sides; such stresses are derived for case of circular sector with right angle cutout.
