Abstract

An analytical and experimental study of the combined axial and bending stresses that occur in a typical hand-held hacksaw is described. A commercially available handsaw is loaded statically by tension in the saw blade. The tensile load on the hacksaw blade results in both bending and axial compressive stresses in the backbone of the hacksaw. This study demonstrates the experimental technique of using strain gages to validate an analytical solution, as well as the concept of creating and calibrating a load transducer to measure the applied load. This paper presents details on the analysis, experimental approach, and the results.
