Elasticity of Crystals

  • T. S. Narasimhamurty


The importance of elasticity in the study of photoelasticity was pointed out in the preceding chapter. For that reason we devote the present chapter to studying the elasticity of crystals before proceeding to describe the experimental methods of photoelasticity in the next chapter. Furthermore, it may be pointed out that when the crystal under investigation is transparent, some of the optical techniques employed for the measurement of the mechanical properties can also be utilized to study the photoelastic behavior of the crystal, with only the addition of some polarization equipment.
