On reinforcing effect of birefringent coatings on plate structures
- 29 Downloads
A mathematical model is introduced and used to obtain a correction factor of the reinforcing effect of birefringent coatings on structures. The bending effect introduced to the coated structure due to the shifting of neutral surface is considered in the derivation of the correction factor. The photoelastic data corrected by this correction factor are found to be in good agreement with the theoretical calculations.
