Paper Abstract

A novel photoelastic stress multiplier is proposed for the first time, which can perform the multiplication operation of two external stresses or forces. The basic structure of this stress multiplier mainly includes two polarizers and two cascaded photoelastic modulators, and theoretical analysis has demonstrated its feasibility. This novel photoelastic stress multiplier will have potential applications in many interdisciplinary fields.
