Abstract : It is shown how photoelasticity makes it possible to determine the dimensions and the forms of parts destined for supporting given stresses, by means of an experimental solution of the equations of the theory of elasticity. The second part is devoted to the practical applications of photoelasticimetry. A simple part is chosen as an example for the determination of the stresses on a section. A wrench is studied: this case, representing a two-dimensional problem, is rigorously amenable to photoelasticimetry. Finally, the important problem of the welding of sheet metal, is discussed.
