Abstract : The distribution of stress around a silo opening in hard rock was investigated by photoelastic techniques. A one foot cube model with a one inch diameter hole seven inches deep constructed of thermo setting material was subjected to a uniform static load on one side of the opening. The model was dissected in order that three-dimensional analysis could be performed on the stress distribution around the opening and in the interior. The analysis was made by the Shear Difference Method. (Author)
