Topics of the 23 papers include failure propagation in adhesive joint under cyclic bending, different methods for determining delamination initiation, a photoelastic
coating technique for car suspension failure analysis, fatigue crack growth rate in a 19th century puddle iron, and fatigue damage analysis of offshore structures using hot spot stress and notch strain approaches.

analysis of conventional screws and cannulated screws for sagittal split osteotomy fixation: a comparative study.
model showed lower stress in periodontal tissue with self-ligating appliance as compared to conventional bracket system.15 Intra arch dimensional changes in both maxillary
In order to detect the ellipticity of the wave's state of polarization, the reflected light wave is monitored with the help of a photoelastic
modulator (PEM) (with 50 kHz modulation frequency), used as a switchable [lambda]/2 wave-plate, a second polarizer (analyzer), and finally a monochromator with a detector.
Later, Cundall and Strack developed the BALL program for simulating two-dimensionally circular blocks of granular media and obtained results that were very consistent with experiments using photoelastic
In (2), [lambda] is the initial wavelength of FBG, [[alpha].sub.f] is the thermal expansion coefficient, [xi] is the thermo-optical coefficient, and [P.sub.e] is the effective photoelastic
Investigation by the photoelastic

In recent years, therefore, some optical methods such as Moire interferometry , holographic method , photoelastic
method [15, 16], and digital image correlation method  have been developed and employed in some fracture tests.
The injection molding of transparent polymers can induce a peculiar stress field that is clearly detected by photoelastic
stress analysis [18,19].
