Paper Abstract

Holographic interferometry has been utilized for obtaining design information on the cover plate of water boxes of industrial condenser. Experiments for this purpose have been carried out on a properly simulated epoxy model of condenser cover plate, which affords ease of incorporating the various configuration of stiffeners. An extensive numerical data analysis of the interferograms for these configurations has resultted in the evolution of modified stiffener arrangement. The modified stiffener configuration has been tested holographically and found to result in considerable reduction in deformations.
