This paper presents an analytical approach to determine the singular stress fields near sharp corners in anisotropic notched plate subjected to bending. The first-order shear deformation plate theory (FSDPT) is used and the material anisotropy is modeled by the Stroh formalism. Based on the Mellin transform method, the stress singularity orders as well as the stress intensities are determined analytically. The results presented in this paper give us the singular behaviors for various plate angle α material orientation angles ϕ and the anisotropic parameters ε. These new findings are helpful in reducing or even eliminating the singularities near the sharp corner.
