About this book
The principal objectives of the book are to provide an introduction to basic concepts and methodologies for digital photoelasticity and to develop a foundation on which the future researcher and student can develop his on ideas and promote research in formulation of problems in digital photoelasticity and application of these techniques to industries. Particular care has been taken to give a clear, straightforward, and simple presentation of various topics. In one volume it provides data acquisition by DIP techniques, data analysis by statistical techniques, data presentation by computer graphics and the use of Rapid Prototyping technologies to enhance the speed of the entire process. The book not only presents the various techniques but also provides time-tested software codes for important techniques. Exercises designed to support and extend the treatment have been placed at the end of each chapter.
