Measurement of curvature by moiré shearing interferometry and mirror surface translation

  • L. L. Wang


In this paper, the curvature of the deformed object plate is measured by means of moiré shearing interferometry and mirror surface translation. The curvature of a clamped steel plate with a concentrated force in its center is measured.
