It has many practical values to visualize experimentally the wave propagation
and the failure process in a beam subjected to a lateral impact load.
photoelasticity is one of the most available methods to visualize these
phenomena and to comprehend the dynamic responses.
In this paper.
Experiments of dynamic photoelasticity are performed for such a
visualization of the stress wave and brittle crack propagation due to lateral
impact force for the beam composed of epoxy resin.
The availability of this
experimental method is shown to make clear the wave propagation and crack
One of the important subjects in the design of lock-sheds will be to analyz...
