%X The bending analysis of moderately thick elliptic plates weakened by an eccentric circular hole has been investigated in this article. The nonlinear governing equations have been presented by considering the von-Karman assumptions and the first-order shear deformation theory in cylindrical coordinates system. Semi-analytical polynomial method (SAPM) which had been presented by the author before has been used. By applying SAPM method, the nonlinear partial differential equations have been transformed to the nonlinear algebraic equations system. Then, the nonlinear algebraic equations have been solved by using Newtonâ€“Raphson method. The obtained results of this study have been compared with the results of other references and the accuracy of the results has been shown. The effect of some important parameters on the results such as the location of the circular hole, the ratio of major to minor radiuses of elliptical plate, the size of circular hole and boundary conditions have been studied. It is concluded that applying the presented method is very convenient and efficient. So, it can be used for analyzing the mechanical behavior of elliptical plates, instead of relatively complicated formulations in elliptic coordinates system.
