Stress intensity estimates by a computer assisted photoelastic method
Author and Affiliation:
Smith, C. W.(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Va., United States)
Abstract: Following an introductory history, the frozen stress photoelastic method is reviewed together with analytical and experimental aspects of cracks in photoelastic models. Analytical foundations are then presented upon which a computer assisted frozen stress photoelastic technique is based for extracting estimates of stress intensity factors from three-dimensional cracked body problems. The use of the method is demonstrated for two currently important three-dimensional crack problems.
