MAE 244 - DATA SHEET LAB-4: Photoelasticity

Name ______________________________ Student ID______________________________ Group # ______________________________ Day/Time/Date _____ __________________

Experiment 1. Tensile test for estimation of stress concentration (Dark field, N=0,1, 2,…. )_ Material Stress Fringe Constant: fσ = 74.5 lb/in Specimen Dimensions: thickness, h= Gross width, w= Net width, d= Notch Radius, r= Applied Load #1: Fringe Number

Distance to the edge


Applied Load #2: Fringe Number

Distance to the edge


Experiment 2. Four-Point Beam Bending_(Bright field, =±0.5, ±1.5, ±2.5…) Material Stress Fringe Constant: f σ = 93 lb/in
Dimensions: Thickness, b = height, h = distance between two lower supports, L2 = distance between two upper supports, L1 =

Horizontal distance between upper and lower supports, d = applied load, P=
Pd 2 1 bh 3 12

the moment acting is M = Fringe Number -2.5 -1.5 Beam (Load=) -0.5 0.5 1.5 2.5

Moment of Inertia, I =

Distance from Theory Stress, beam center, y ( in ) σ = yM/I

Experiment Stress, σ= Nf σ /b

Percent Difference
