An examination of the effect of Poisson’s ratio on stress distribution is important to interpret the results of a stress-strain analysis by using experimental methods because the material of the model frequently has a different Poisson’s ratio from that of the prototype. In linear elasticity, the effect of Poisson’s ratio on three-dimensional stress distribution is theoretically explained for simply connected bodies by using static methods in this study. It is proven that the stress components are independent from Poisson’s ratio in sections of the body where the stress components arising are in equilibrium only with surface tractions. This result is useful in interpreting three-dimensional photoelasticity and other experiments and even in guiding the design.
