Abstract:

The hybrid experimental-numerical stress analysis technique, which saw limited applications during the 1950s, has been resurrected with the vastly improved numerical techniques of the 1970s. By inputing the experimental results as initial and boundary conditions, modern computer codes can be executed in its generation and application modes to yield results which are unobtainable when only one of the two techniques is used. The hybrid technique thus exemplifies the complementary role of the experimental and numerical techniques. Author
