The Use of Optical Methods in the Analysis of the Areas with Stress Concentration

Open access


Anchoring parts of technical systems are often damaged due to the heavy forces acting on these systems during their operation. For that reason, various modifications are suggested and created on the anchoring screws, which should help to reduce the mechanical stress values in a place of the first load-bearing thread of a female screw. For the determination of stress fields on the surface of a plane model of a threaded joint, two non-contact optical methods were used – conventional transmission photoelasticimetry and modern digital image correlation.
