Gravitational Stresses in Deep Beams

This paper reviews the methods available for the calculation of gravitational stresses in deep beams and presents the results of a series of experiments on such beams using the frozen stress method of photoelasticity in which gravitational loading was simulated in a large centrifuge. The stresses so obtained are given in a form suitable for use in design and a number of comparisons with theoretical results are shown. Professor A. W. Hendry
