The purpose of the present Note is to show how the general axisymmetric photoelastic problem can be solved using only the integrated data. Indeed, the axisymmetric problem is reduced to a quasi-plane problem in that only a fringe photograph plus a plot of the family of isoclinics is sufficient to yield a complete solution. The formulation includes the treatment of thermoelastic and residual stress problems.
