Paper Abstract

This paper presents a method for measuring residual stresses in plastic materials. The approach is based on measuring the out-of-plane displacement caused by a blind hole drilled on the surface of the test object. The out-of-plane displacement is measured by electronic shearography at video camera speed and hence the results are obtained almost in real-time. Unlike holography, electronic shearography does not require special vibration isolation nor ambient light dependence. These advantageous features make the method practical for qualitative analysis of residual stresses in a production/field environment.
