In this study, the Modified Mapping Collocation method is employed to analyse the response of finite composite laminates with multiple circular holes under appropriate material and geometric symmetry conditions. In the case of a laminate with a single hole, the analysis is capable of accommodating the direct imposition of traction conditions, as well as the displacement constraints, without requiring any symmetry conditions. The results presented in this study are in agreement with existing solutions. The results also illustrate the effect of finite boundaries and their relative position in relation to the holes on the stress concentrations.
