A Comparison Of Analytical And Experimental Approaches In Determining The Thermoelastic Stresses Around A Cylindrical Inclusion Of Elliptical Cross-Section, Kenneth Byron Oster Jan 1972

A Comparison Of Analytical And Experimental Approaches In Determining The Thermoelastic Stresses Around A Cylindrical Inclusion Of Elliptical Cross-Section, Kenneth Byron Oster

Masters Theses

"Three approaches are used to determine the principal stress differences in an infinite elastic medium containing a cylindrical inclusion of elliptic cross-section due to a uniform temperature change. First, the two-dimensional equations of thermoelasticity are solved resulting in equations for the stress components anywhere in the medium material. Second, boundary displacements based on stress-strain relations are used as input displacements in a finite element program of the medium. Third, these same boundary displacements are used as input displacements on a photoelastic model simulating the medium. The problem is treated as one of plane strain in the first approach and one ...
