Determination of Principal-Stress Directions by Three-Step Color Phase Shifting Technique
A three-step phase shifting approach for automatic determination of the isoclinic parameter in photoelasticity is presented. Unreliable isoclinic values affected by the isochromatic parameter are solved using the white light. The method uses three fringe images digitally captured by a digital camera for three different configurations of the dark-field plane polariscope. For a circular disk under compression, results show the method permits the isoclinic parameter in the range -π/2 to π/2 with almost free of the isochromatic parameter and comparable with theory.
