Comparison of theoretical and experimental results obtained in the study of thermal stresses in three-layer composite plates


  1. 1.

    Calculations by means of the above-presented improved procedure for the determination of the stressed state in the edge zone of multilayer plates are in good agreement with experimental results obtained by the photoelasticity method. The best agreement was obtained for the directly measured values ofτ max andτ xz.

  2. 2.

    The proposed procedure for the theoretical investigation by MBF can be applied in order to shorten the time and to reduce the time required for experiments; its confidence can be tested in the determination of thermal stresses by the polarization optical method in a cryogenic chamber using the KSP-7 instrument.
