Just a point....
"And when I see yout transparent board ...I remember through my initial calculations/analysis...that a transparent board would make my life easier through photoelasticity ...that was taught during uni time.."

This is quite a good idea for promo...as you may show how you anticipate all the local stresses..in real visualialzation way and on different cases..like even impacts that anyone will be convinced. ..what you see is real...Ofcourse The missing puzzle piece is to manage to adjust the properties of the material somehow..and bring it close to the one under production....and finally manage to optimize.
Turbo foil blades are getting similar tests...
And while checking the web recently ...the methods/equipmemnt are now quite advanced..
