Paper Abstract

A fiber-ptic technique and the conventional photoelastic technique were applied to the investigation of pin-loaded specimens which simulate pin joints and bolted joints. The angle of contact between the pin and the hole was measured by these techniques and compared with finite element results. The stress distributions obtained from the otoelastic response were also compared with the finite element results. Such comparisons are needed to verify the finite element model and to assess the role of important joint variables such as friction.
