    Ability to determine stresses in loaded, perforated cellulosic-manure composites from recorded temperature information was demonstrated. Being able to stress analyze such green materials addresses several societal issues. These include providing engineering members fabricated from materials that are suitable for developed and developing nations, relieving a troubling by-product of agricultural regions and reducing demands on our landfills. Most engineering applications of these materials necessitate knowing their structural integrity eg capability to evaluate stresses.
