Experimental and theoretical determination of thermal stresses in a flat

plate Thermal stresses induced in a flat, rectangular, 75S-T6 aluminum-alloy plate by nonuniform heating are determined both experimentally and theoretically. The characteristics of commercially available bonded resistance wire strain gages are first investigated to determine their suitability for measuring stresses under simple conditions of stress and temperature.
