This light then follows, at each point of the specimen, the direction of principal stress at that point.

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 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.

The isoclinics change with the orientation of the polariscope while there is no change in the isochromatics. This eliminates the problem of differentiating between the isoclinics and the isochromatics. The photoelastic phenomenon was first discovered by the Scottish physicist David Brewster.

Photoelasticity can describe both three-dimensional and two-dimensional states of stress. With refinements in the technology, photoelastic experiments were extended to determining three-dimensional states of stress.


Dynamic photoelasticity integrated with high-speed photography is utilized to investigate fracture behavior in materials.


When a ray circupar light passes through a photoelastic material, its electromagnetic wave components are resolved along the two principal stress directions and each component experiences a different refractive index due to the birefringence. The experimental procedure relies on the property of birefringenceas exhibited by certain transparent materials.

Isochromatics are the loci of the points along which the difference in the first and second principal stress remains the same. For materials that do not show photoelastic behavior, it is still possible to study the stress distribution. From either definition, it is clear that deformations to the body may induce optical anisotropy, which can cause an otherwise optically isotropic material to exhibit birefringence.

The light is then made to pass through the analyzer and we finally get the fringe pattern. So the present section deals with photoelasticity in a plane stress system. Retrieved from ” https: Nye, “Physical Properties of Crystals: Photoelastic experiments also polariacope referred to as photoelasticity are an important tool polarjscope 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. International Journal of Fracture,91— This led to the development of dynamic photoelasticity, which has contributed greatly to the study of complex phenomena such as fracture of materials.

It is a property of all dielectric media and is often used to experimentally determine the stress distribution in a material, where it gives a picture of stress distributions around discontinuities in materials.

To further get values of each stress component, a technique called stress-separation is required. Photoelasticity polatiscope been used for a variety of stress cjrcular and even for routine use in design, particularly before the advent of numerical methods, such as for instance finite elements or boundary elements. The apparatus is set up in such a way that this plane polarized light then passes through the stressed specimen.

Photoelasticity – Wikipedia

The working principle of a two-dimensional experiment allows the measurement of retardation, which can be converted to the difference between the first and second principal stress and their orientation. 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.


A new method for studies of clinical mechanics in prosthetic dentistry Dental Materials,pp. In a circular polariscope setup two quarter- wave plates circcular added to the experimental setup of the plane polariscope. These can be obtained through photoelastic techniques. Birefringence is a phenomenon in which a ray of light passing through a given material experiences two refractive indices.

Wikipedia articles with NDL identifiers. The analyzer-side quarter-wave plate converts the circular polarization state back to linear before the light passes through the analyzer. However, examining photoelasticity in three-dimensional systems is more involved than two-dimensional or plane-stress system. The loading is then applied in the same way to ensure that the stress distribution in the model is similar to the stress in the real circulxr.

The first step is to build a model, using photoelastic materials, which has geometry similar to the real structure under investigation. Information such as maximum shear stress and its orientation are available by polariscooe the birefringence with an instrument called a polariscope. Thus they are the lines which join the points with equal maximum shear stress magnitude. Bifurcation Theory and Material Instability. Thus one is only concerned with stresses acting parallel to the plane of the model, as other stress components are zero.
