Abstract : The purpose of the investigation was to determine experimentally the dynamic-stress concentration factors in a strut loaded by high-velocity impact and containing a symmetrically located elliptical discontinuity. The photoelastic technique was used and the conventional light source with its many inherent problems was replaced with a modulated ruby laser. (Author)
