Statically determinate and inderminate structures are generally designed by analytical methods. This paper describes several experimental aids which have been used in the design and stress analysis of statically indeterminate structures at the laboratories of the Bureau of Reclamation. These methods are used where analytical procedures cannot be conviently be applied. Described herein are photoelastic methods using both the polariscope and interferometer, the Beggs Deformeter, Stresscoat and electric SR-4 Strain gages. Applications are given for each method.
