The thesis is a presentation of the photoelastic technique for stress analysis applied to transmission shafting. Experimental effort was directed to devise a unique photoelastic sleeve which, when bonded to the reflective surface of a shaft, would provide a direct indication of shaft torque. A suitable stress-optic material molded to a working shaft makes this method useful for practical application.
