Paper Abstract

The thermal deformation and stresses of a bimaterial specimen were determined by high sensitive moiré interferometry. A thermal replicate method was developed in which the thermally deformed specimen grating was replicated to a non-thermal expansion glass plate at elevated temperature and viewed at a moiré intermerometer after it was cooled. The carrier fringe technique was used to separate the free thermal expansion and the thermal stress-induced deformation. Based on the test results the thermal strains and stresses around the interface and the stress concentration at the inner corner of the bimaterial specimen were discussed.
