Paper Abstract

Moire, holography, speckle and thermographic (SPATE) stress analysis are used to analyze a variety of engineering problems involving man-made (fiber-reinforced) and natural (wood, paperboard) composites, metals and rubber. The photomechanical techniques are combined with computer-vision (digital-imaging) concepts. Some attention is devoted to hybrid methods for processing and differentiating recorded optical data. Applications involve both small and large (including nonlinear) strains, and hostile environments. Illustrations include those to fracture, stress waves, material behavior, knots in wood and energy storage.
