The effect of adding the quarter-wave plate after the source-side polarizer is that we get circularly polarized light passing through the sample.

The light source can polarjscope emit monochromatic light or white light depending upon the experiment. International Journal of Fracture,91— Dynamic photoelasticity integrated with high-speed photography is utilized to investigate fracture behavior in materials.

In a circular polariscope setup two quarter- wave plates are added to the experimental setup of the plane polariscope. To further get values of each stress component, a technique called stress-separation is required.

Part II — Modelling. Thus they are the lines which join the points with equal maximum shear stress magnitude.

By studying the fringe pattern one can determine the state of stress at various points in the material. Dal Corso and D. Nye, “Physical Properties of Crystals: Retrieved from ” https: Photoelasticity can describe both three-dimensional and two-dimensional states circlar stress.


So the present section deals with photoelasticity in a plane stress system. Part I — Experiments. The number of fringe order N is denoted as.

Photoelasticity describes changes in the optical properties of a material under mechanical deformation. Brewster, Experiments on the depolarization of light as exhibited by various mineral, animal and vegetable bodies with a reference of the phenomena to the general principle of polarization, Phil.

The polariscope combines the different polarization states of light waves before and after passing the specimen. Photoelastic experiments also informally referred to as photoelasticity are an important tool for determining critical stress points in a material, and are used for determining stress concentration in irregular geometries.


The two basic kinds of setup used are plane polariscope and circular polariscope. This page was last edited on 20 Decemberat Cambridge University Press, Isochromatics are the polarscope of the points along which the difference in the first and second principal stress remains the same. With the advent of the digital polariscope — made possible by light-emitting diodes — continuous monitoring of structures under load became possible.

At the same time, much development occurred polarizcope the field — great improvements were achieved in technique, and the equipment was simplified. For materials that do not show photoelastic behavior, it is still possible to study the stress distribution.

Thus one is only concerned with stresses acting parallel to the plane of the model, as other stress components are zero. Polariscop can be obtained through photoelastic techniques.


The property of birefringence or double refraction is observed in many optical crystals. The apparatus is set up in such a way that this plane polarized light then passes through the stressed specimen.

The retardation changes the polarization of transmitted light. Geophone Hydrophone Microphone Seismometer. Icrcular is a phenomenon in which a ray of light passing through a given material experiences two refractive indices. The fringe pattern in a plane polariscope setup consists of both the isochromatics and the isoclinics. The difference in the refractive indices leads to a relative phase retardation between the two components.

Assuming a thin specimen made of isotropic materials, where two-dimensional photoelasticity is applicable, the magnitude of the relative retardation is given by the stress-optic law: The basic advantage of a circular polariscope over a plane polariscope is that in a circular polariscope setup we only get the isochromatics and not the isoclinics.

Although the symmetric photoelastic tensor is most commonly defined with respect to mechanical strain, it is also possible to express photoelasticity in terms of the mechanical stress. The first quarter-wave plate is placed in between the polarizer and the specimen and the second quarter-wave plate is placed between the specimen and the analyzer.
