Photoelasticity describes changes in the optical properties of a material under mechanical deformation. 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.
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 photoelastic phenomenon was polagiscope discovered by the Scottish physicist David Brewster.
Filon of University of Polaeiscope. Their book Treatise on Photoelasticitypublished in by Cambridge Pressbecame a standard text on the polariscpe.
Between andmany other books appeared on the subject, including books in RussianGerman and French. At the same time, much development occurred in the field — great polarsicope were achieved in technique, and the equipment was simplified. With refinements in the technology, photoelastic experiments were extended to determining three-dimensional states of stress.
With the advent of the digital polariscope — made possible by light-emitting diodes — continuous monitoring of structures under load became possible. This led to the development of dynamic photoelasticity, which has contributed greatly to the study of complex phenomena such as fracture of materials. Photoelasticity has been used for a variety of stress analyses and even for routine use in design, particularly before the polarisckpe of numerical methods, such as for instance finite elements or boundary elements.
Photoelasticity can successfully be used cjrcular investigate the highly localized stress state within masonry    or in proximity of a rigid line inclusion stiffener embedded in an elastic medium.
These can be obtained through photoelastic techniques. Dynamic photoelasticity integrated with high-speed photography is utilized to investigate fracture behavior in materials.
For isotropic materials, this definition simplifies to . 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. Although the symmetric photoelastic tensor is most commonly defined with respect to mechanical strain, it is also polaeiscope to express photoelasticity in terms of the mechanical stress.
The experimental procedure relies on the property of birefringenceas exhibited by certain transparent materials.
Birefringence is a phenomenon in which a ray of light passing through a given material experiences two polariscpe indices.

The property of birefringence or double refraction is observed in many optical crystals. Upon the application of stresses, photoelastic materials exhibit the property of birefringence, and the magnitude of the refractive indices at each point in the material is directly related to the state of stresses at that point. Information such as maximum shear stress and its orientation are available by analyzing the birefringence with an instrument called a polariscope. When a fircular of 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 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 retardation changes the polarization of transmitted light. The polariscope combines the different polarization states of light waves before and after passing the specimen.
Due to optical interference of the two waves, a fringe pattern is revealed. The number of fringe order N is denoted as. By studying the fringe pattern one can determine the state of stress at various points in the material.
For materials that do not show photoelastic behavior, it is still possible to study the stress distribution. The first step is to build a model, using photoelastic materials, which has geometry similar to the real structure under investigation. 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 structure. Isoclinics are the loci of the points in the specimen along which the principal stresses are in the same direction.
Isochromatics are the loci of the points along which the difference in the first and second principal stress remains the same. Thus they are the lines which join the points with equal maximum shear stress magnitude.
Photoelasticity can describe both three-dimensional and two-dimensional polarixcope of stress. However, examining photoelasticity in three-dimensional systems is more involved than two-dimensional or plane-stress system. So the present section deals with photoelasticity in a plane stress system. This condition is achieved when the thickness of the prototype is much smaller as compared cirular dimensions in the plane.
Thus one is only concerned with stresses acting parallel to the plane of the model, as other stress components are zero. The experimental setup varies from experiment to experiment.
The two basic kinds of setup used are plane polariscope and circular polariscope. 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.
To further get values of each stress xircular, a technique called stress-separation is required.

The setup consists of two linear polarizers and a light source. The light source can either emit monochromatic light or white light depending upon the experiment. First the light is passed through the first polarizer which converts the light into plane polarized light. The apparatus is set up in such a way that this plane polarized light then pplariscope through the stressed specimen. This po,ariscope then follows, at each point of the crcular, the direction of principal stress at that point.
The light is then made to pass through the analyzer and we finally get the fringe pattern. The ppolariscope pattern in a plane polariscope setup consists of both the isochromatics and the isoclinics.
The isoclinics change with the orientation of the polariscope while there is no change in the isochromatics. In a circular polariscope setup two quarter- wave plates are added to the experimental setup of the plane polariscope. 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 effect of adding the quarter-wave plate after the source-side polarizer is that we get circularly polarized lolariscope passing through the sample. The analyzer-side quarter-wave plate converts the circular polarization state back to linear before the light passes through the analyzer. 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. This eliminates the problem of differentiating between the isoclinics and the isochromatics.
