Abstract: Cantilever and simply supported beams are undoubtedly most commonly used structural elements. So, it is very important to find out the points on these beams at which the maximum stress occurs i.e. the failure points. Failure of beams can be avoided by making some modification around these points. The objective of this research paper is to find these points of maximum stress and calculate the value of stress at these points. In current case, a comparative study between experimental and simulated fringes was used to compare the stresses developed in the beams. A comparison was also made between experimental and simulated values of the difference in principal stresses to validate the FEA solution.
