A Numerical Method for Separation of Stresses in Photo-Orthotropic Elasticity - A Method Is Suggested for Separation of Stresses in Photo-Orthotropic Elasticity Using the Numerical Solution of Compatibility Equation

Abstract

A numerical method is suggested for separation of stresses in photo-orthotropic elasticity using the numerical solution of compatibility equation for orthotropic case. The compatibility equation is written in terms of a stress parameter S analogous to the sum of principal stresses in two-dimensional isotropic case. The solution of this equation provides a relation between the normal stresses. The photoelastic data give the shear stress and another relation between the two normal stresses. The accuracy of the numerical method and its application to practical problems are illustrated with examples.
