The development and evaluation of an experimental technique to determine stress distribution in uniformly loaded flat plates
"This thesis reports and evaluates an experimental technique that was developed to determine and monitor the stresses in a simply supported, uniformly loaded circular plate. Deflections are less than half the thickness of the plate. The application of the developed technique to plates whose integrity has been compromised with holes in various locations is discussed. Resistance strain gages were used to determine experimentally the stresses in a simply supported, uniformly loaded circular plate with and without a concentric hole. The accuracy of the experimental results was established to be within approximately six percent of theoretical. Proper application of the experimental technique to simply supported, uniformly loaded circular plates with non-concentric holes, or other perforations, can be expected to produce similar accuracy"--Abstract, leaf ii.
