Paper Abstract

Photoelastic sensor with fringe image transfer by an image-guide to a computer for stress analysis was constructed for those applications where the place of measurements is hard to reach and electrical instruments are not permissible. Two types of sensors are presented: one, disc-like, for uniaxial stress observations and the second one, called a hollow glass cylinder, with axially bored stress concentrator for biaxial stress measurements. Sensor is a central cylinder glass cemented in a cubical concrete block. The sensor is connected to autocollimating polariscope, which allows the sensor to be lit and transport an isochrome image to digital image processor card. The numerical analysis of the fringes images is done in many ways. The original programs for the analysis are presented.
