Paper Abstract

Photoelasticity is one of the oldest methods for experimental stress analysis, but has been overshadowed by the Finite Element Method for engineering applications over the past two/three decades. However, certain new and novel developments and applications have revived the use of photoelasticity. Among them are image processing for fringe analysis, poiarimetric fiber optic sensors, infra-red photoelasticity, low cost dynamic photoelasticity and photoelastic applications in stereolithography. This paper will, after a brief introduction to photoelasticity, highlight some of these advances and developments.
