    The state and distribution of stress in single-shear, double-notch sheet specimens were analyzed by the photoelastic technique. It was found that the shearing stress in the central area was neither pure nor uniform. Because of the stress state and distribution, it cannot be used to determine creep or stress-strain relations in pure shear. However, it is possible that it may be used to determine the ultimate shearing strength in materials of sufficient ductility.
