Image Processing for Optical Methods to Analyze Shape, Deformation, Stress and Strain
The authors have been developing some novel methods to measure shape, deformation, stress and strain of structures using optical methods and image processing as follows: (1) Phase analysis methods using Fourier, wavelet or Gabor transforms, etc., (2) Real-time 2-D strain measurement using moiré interferometry, (3) Scanning moiré method using thinning-out of scanning lines and a DMD camera (4) Strain rate distribution measurement by a high-speed video camera, (5) Real-time integrated phase-shifting method, (6) Shape measurement methods using multi-reference planes, a linear image sensor, or a frequency modulated grating, and (7) Windowed phase-shifting digital holographic interferometry (WPSDHI). Theories of these methods and some applications are introduced. The most accurate result is 88 picometer standard deviation of errors using the WPSDHI.
