A Photoelastic Study Of The Stresses In A Deep Beam Using Partial Mirrors For Isochromatic Fringe Sharpening And Fringe Multiplication, Edward M. Raney

Masters Theses

"This paper is a photoelastic investigation of the stresses in a deep beam using partial mirrors to obtain isocromatic fringe sharpening and fringe multiplication. This method may be of particular value in photoelastic work for obtaining full field fringe multiplication and fringe sharpening for models which exhibit low fringe orders.

The photoelastic model used in this investigation is a deep beam with a length to depth ratio of one. A uniform load is applied over the center one-half of the beam. The beam is supported by two uniform loads distributed over a length of one-quarter the span.

A first approximation ...
