The stress concentration factors for transmission roller chain link plates made of isotropic and orthotropic composite materials have been calculated used the finite element method. The stress concentration factors investigated for three different composite materials (fiber-glass, boron-epoxy, graphite-epoxy) and isotropic roller chain link plate and three different geometry. The composite materials of reinforcement angles are fixed 0 and 90 degree. The stress concentration factors the made of different composite materials and several geometry have been compared and controlled by the fotoelastic experiment
