Abstract:
Engineers have used birefringent coating as a full field surface strain measuring tool for many years. The technique provides visual inspection of the structure on highly stressed areas that may lead to a potential structural failure. The usage of this technique for analysis of automotive brake components is very common. The recent development of the strain freezing technique extends further the capability of birefringent coating analysis. Hidden areas with high stresses can now be revealed for analysis.
