Abstract

"In this investigation the author used beams made of Bakelite. They were of rectangular cross-section and centrally loaded. These beams were viewed in polarized light and the maximum fiber stresses observed in that manner were compared with those computed from the flexure formula. The purpose was to determine the minimum length-depth ratio for which the latter gave fairly accurate results"--Preface, page 6.
