The stress concentration and distribution around a triple-junction pore of three-fold symmetry in a polycrystalline ceramic material is considered. The perturbation method in the theory of plane elasticity is used to solve the problem of a nearly circular pore of three-fold symmetry under remote loading in the first approximation. The solution was specified to the uniaxial tension of convex and concave rounded triangular pores. The stress concentration on the pore surface and the stress distribution in vicinity of the pore along its symmetry axes are studied and discussed in detail. The numerical results, issued from the first-order approximation analytical solution, are compared with those of finite-element calculations.
