Paper Abstract

The suitability of hybridizing measured strain (from commercial strain gages) and photoelastic (from birefringent coatings) information with a stress function and numerical tools for full-field stress analyzing engineering problems is emphasized. Applications include those to traction-free and pin-loaded holes in isotropic aluminum plates, orthotropic composites and wood. For the pinned joints, both pin/hole clearance and friction are accounted for, and the stresses on the contacting edge of the loaded hole are determined.
