Basic Optical Stress Measurement in Glass

Basic Optical Stress Measurement in Glass

There are many texts dealing with photoelastic analysis and its applications, but they are not aimed specifically at the assessment of residual stresses in glasses. This publication offers a practical guide providing information on the various optical arrangements and interpretation of results from typical plant apparatus, it is of general interest to those making stress measurements within the glass industry. There is a survey of the available methods and an outline of the application of these techniques to the various measurements which have to be made as a matter of course during production. In addition, the relevant theory is discussed in a non-mathematical manner to provide readers with the background knowledge of how these techniques work, as well as an appreciation of the limitations of the methods when applied to glass products. Users of photoelastic techniques in the glass industry, both in day-to-day quality assurance and in more specialist fault-finding applications, will find the information in this book relevant to their needs and that it provides an improved understanding of the measurements being made.
