The mechanics of blocky material

Chappell, Brian Arnold

Description

Photoelastic models are constructed to examine the stress distribution in discontinua. To this end photoelastic material namely an epoxy resin (Araldite D) is used and a 22 in. diffusion polariscope constructed. Initially simple experiments examining slip are performed and these show that by varying the constraints on the surrounding blocks, the stress distribution and deformational response are altered. The effect of rotation appears to be most important in determining what...[Show more]
