Photoelastic Analysis of a Composite Prism Subjected to Partial Compression
The determination of stresses and strains in three-dimensional composite bodies is a difficult problem both theoretically and experimentally. A new method is suggested to determine the interface stresses directly from the photoelastic data of the slices, using continuity conditions along the interface. The complete stress distribution in the composite prism is obtained using a numerical method which make use of experimentally determined boundary stresses and the results are given for certain typical sections.
