Abstract
Stress determination by Photoelasticity has been used extensively for two dimensional problems. Certain poperties of photoelastic materials indicate that the photoelastic method might be used for three dimensional problems. The purpose of this paper is (1) to verify the properties of Bakelite BT (61-893) which make this material suitable for stress determination in three dimensions, (2) to determine photoelastically the difference in principal stresses in three mutually perpondicular planes in particular problems. Observations are made regarding techniques to be followed.
