    Digital Photoelasticity: Advanced Techniques and Applications

    $156.00 $144.00

    This book provides an introduction to basic concepts and methodologies for digital photoelasticity. It also develops a foundation on which the future researcher and student can develop his own ideas and promote research in formulation of problems in digital photoelasticity and application of these techniques to industry. 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.

    High Sensitivity Moire: Experimental Analysis for Mechanics and Materials

    $75.00 $69.00

    The book teaches physical measurements by high-sensitivity moiré – principally moiré interferometry – including theory and practice. Its focus is on the mechanics and micromechanics of materials and structural elements. Unlike classical and holographic interferometry, which are best suited for out-of-plane deformation measurements, moiré interferometry provides whole-field maps of the in-plane displacements.

    Image Correlation for Shape, Motion and Deformation Measurements Basic Concepts, Theory and Applications

    $129.00
    Image Correlation for Shape, Motion and Deformation Measurements provides a comprehensive overview of data extraction through image analysis. Readers will find and in-depth look into various single- and multi-camera models (2D-DIC and 3D-DIC), two- and three-dimensional computer vision, and volumetric digital image correlation (VDIC). Fundamentals of accurate image matching are described, along with presentations of both new methods for quantitative error estimates in correlation-based motion measurements, and the effect of out-of-plane motion on 2D measurements. Thorough appendices offer descriptions of continuum mechanics formulations, methods for local surface strain estimation and non-linear optimization, as well as terminology in statistics and probability.

    Optical Methods of Engineering Analysis

    $88.00 $80.00

    This book meets the need for an up-to-date exposition of optical methods in experimental mechanics. The author efficiently integrates optic theory with the development of optical methods. Techniques discussed include classical interferometry, photoelasticity, geometric moiré, optical spatial filtering, intermediate sensitivity moiré, holographic interferometry and phase measurement techniques. This book provides a firm base in the physical principles and, at the same time, allows the reader to perform meaningful experiments related to the topic being studied.
