In addition to processing a troubling agricultural by-product and reducing demands on our landfills, prepared agro-waste composites are suitable for a variety of practical applications. However, enhancing value-added options for these agricultural by-products can necessitate ability to assess their mechanical integrity. This paper accordingly describes the preparation of a cellulosic-manure composite and demonstrates ability to determine stresses in a perforated structure of the material from measured displacement data. Processing digital image correlation (DIC) recorded displacement information with an Airy stress function gives reliable results full-field as well as at the edge of geometric discontinuities without having to differentiate the recorded data. Required constitutive properties are evaluated in situ and results are substantiated independently.
