Isoclinics are the loci of the points in the specimen along which the principal stresses are in the same direction. Between andmany other books appeared on the subject, including books in RussianGerman and French. This light then follows, at each point of the specimen, the direction of principal stress at that point. Noselli, Localized stress percolation through dry masonry walls.

Views Read Edit View history. The property of birefringence or double refraction is observed in many optical crystals.

Bigoni, The stress intensity near a stiffener disclosed by photoelasticity. First the light polariscopr passed through the first polarizer which converts the light polariscooe plane polarized light. Photoelasticity can successfully be used to investigate the highly localized stress state within masonry [9] [10] [11] or in proximity of a rigid line inclusion stiffener embedded in an elastic medium. The photoelastic phenomenon was first discovered by the Scottish physicist David Brewster.

Cambridge University Press, Isochromatics are the loci of the points along which the difference in the first and second principal stress remains the same.


Dal Corso and D. By studying the fringe pattern one can determine the state of stress at various points in the material. The difference in the refractive indices leads to a relative phase retardation between the two components. Brewster, On the communication of the structure of doubly-refracting crystals to glass, murite of soda, flour spar, and other substances by mechanical compression and dilation, Phil.

Assuming a thin specimen made of isotropic materials, where two-dimensional photoelasticity is applicable, the magnitude of the relative retardation is given by the stress-optic law: Brewster, Experiments on the depolarization of light as exhibited by various mineral, animal and vegetable bodies with a reference of the phenomena to the general principle of polarization, Phil.

With the advent of polzriscope digital polariscope — made possible by light-emitting diodes — continuous monitoring of structures under load became possible. This condition is achieved when the thickness of the prototype is much smaller as compared to dimensions in the plane.

So the present section deals with photoelasticity in a plane stress system.

The effect of adding the quarter-wave plate after the source-side polarizer is that we get circularly polarized light passing through the sample.

Part I — Experiments. Photoelasticity has been used for a variety of stress analyses and even for routine use in design, particularly before the advent of numerical methods, such as for instance finite elements or boundary elements.

Bifurcation Theory and Material Instability. Mechanics Mechanical engineering Materials science Optics. The fringe pattern in a plane polariscope setup consists of both the isochromatics and the isoclinics.

This eliminates the problem of differentiating between the isoclinics and the isochromatics. The light source can either emit monochromatic light or white light depending upon the experiment.


The working principle of a two-dimensional experiment allows the measurement of retardation, which can be converted to the circuar between the first and second principal stress and their orientation. Due to optical interference of the two waves, a fringe pattern is revealed. From either definition, it is clear that deformations to the body may induce optical anisotropy, which can cause an otherwise optically isotropic material to exhibit birefringence.

Information such as maximum shear stress and its orientation are available by analyzing the birefringence with an instrument called a polariscope. The two basic kinds of setup used are plane polariscope and circular polariscope. For isotropic materials, this definition simplifies to circylar.

Photoelasticity – Wikipedia

With refinements in the technology, photoelastic experiments were extended to determining three-dimensional states of stress. At the same time, much development occurred in the field — great improvements were achieved in technique, and the equipment was simplified. 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.
