In photoelastic stress analysis, a reflective coating is applied to the surface of the object under investigation, and a tool such as a digital polariscope splits coherent, monochromatic light into two beams and shines them on the object through a system of polarizers. While photoelastic-model analysis is an effective method to measure stresses, its practical use is limited to solving problems under well-defined loading conditions which can be successfully applied on a simulated basis to the model. Further, model analysis does not take into account such conditions as hidden material defects, assembly stresses, residual stresses, inelastic behavior, and other.   Photoelasticity describes changes in the optical properties of a material under mechanical deformation. It is a property of all dielectric media and is often used to experimentally determine the stress distribution in a material, where it gives a picture of stress distributions around discontinuities in materials. Photoelastic experiments (also informally referred to as photoelasticity) are an. Abstract. Photoelastic stress analysis is a full-field technique for measuring the magnitudes and directions of principal stresses. The technique has been used traditionally to study plane polymer models of structures (Frocht, a, b) by passing polarized light through transparent, loaded models and interpreting stress fields from the formation of interference fringes.

Now, let us restrict the discussion to plane-stress systems, so that the basis of photoelasticity can be developed without needless complications. A plane-stress problem is approached when the thickness (lateral dimension) of the prototype and the model is. The course covers the basic aspects of experimental stress analysis that includes exhaustive treatment of the most versatile techniques like photoelasticity and strain gauges and also a brief introduction to the emerging techniques like digital image correlation.   Photoelasticity is, arguably, the most favored in the pantheon of the experimental techniques. However, no revolutionary developments have occurred in the methods used for photoelastic studies for a very long time (The latest is, perhaps, the PhotoStress® photoelastic coating method, introduced in ).

Investigation of Photoelastic Property and Stress Analysis for Optical Polyimide Membrane through Stress Birefringence Method by Guohan Gao 1,2,*, Danbo Mao 1, Renkui Jiang 1, Zhiwei Li 1, Xin Liu 1, Baiping Lei 1, Jiang Bian 1, Shibin Wu 1 and Bin Fan 1.

A linear regression analysis was used to find 90% and 95% confidence intervals of accuracy for the photoelastic data. As an application, the coating technique was used to investigate the stress distribution. Method utilizes a birefringent model of the actual structure to view Stress fields (applied and residual) can be exposed using models of structures in photosensitive material placed For stress analysis two types are used: 1. Plane (Linear) polariscope 2. Circular polariscope.
